Rajon Rondo was expected to be a starting point guard for the U.S. team but he dropped out Tuesday.

WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) - Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo
says he's saving his money as if the lockout is going to happen.
Reacting to NBA Commissioner David Stern's comments that he
wants player salaries cut by one-third, Rondo said he wants to be
prepared.
Rondo is the Celtics' alternate player representative. He says
he's "saving a lot of money this year."
Rondo is scheduled to earn $9 million this season.
Stern said Thursday that the league and its owners spend $2.1
billion on salaries and benefits. He said he's looking to slash
$750 to $800 million in payroll.
The labor agreement expires after this season. Both sides have
said they believe they can reach an agreement that would prevent a
work stoppage.
