 MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Rudy Gay will remember being cut from the U.S. men's Olympic basketball team for the rest of his career.
The Memphis Grizzlies forward described the news he got in early July as tough to hear when U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski told Gay he wouldn't be playing with the team in the London Olympics.
But Gay says he'll use the snub as motivation heading into the Grizzlies' season.
Memphis fans have high expectations for Gay, especially since the Grizzlies signed him to a maximum deal in July 2010.
