Sources reveal Rajon Rondo will receive a belated invitation to join 24 other NBA players when they try out for Team USA — competing in the World Championship in Turkey — Aug. 28-Sept. 12. Miscommunication apparently caused the Celtics’ All-Star to be ignored. That changed once he expressed a fervent willingness to participate.
Rondo will join Kendrick Perkins, who had already been invited.
Congrats, Rajon. You deserve it.
