Brandon Jennings wants Team USA to play Harrison Barnes

Share This

While Kevin Durant played the first 27 minutes of the gold-medal game between the U.S. and Serbia, Harrison Barnes had yet to see the floor through three quarters.

New York Knicks guard Brandon Jennings was curious about the situation, taking to Twitter on Sunday:

Someone responded, saying at least Barnes is on Team USA. Jennings replied by listing other NBA players who – like him – aren’t on the squad.

At the time, Draymond Green was the only other American who hadn’t had any burn, but Coach K called upon him with just under eight minutes remaining.

Barnes, who’s at the very bottom of the U.S. depth chart, was unleashed with about six minutes left in the contest and his team up by 41 points, narrowly avoiding a fifth DNP-CD in the tournament.

Of course, Jennings was really excited about that.

Barnes finished with two points, one assist, and a steal in 5:54 in USA’s 96-66 victory.
