USA Men's Basketball: Which Jazz player would excel the most in the "International Game"?

One of the best things about how the Utah Jazz draft is how they (for the most part) tend to favor picking guys who have predefined skills that translate across all forms of the game. For example, if you can rebound in college you can rebound in the NBA, and if you can rebound in the NBA, you can rebound in Europe, or Asia, or on Pluto. That said, not all talents translate as uniformly as rebounding does.

If you are a blur with the ball and can get up and down the court you are not at a disadvantage. If your idea of defense means never going out there to check your man spotting up behind the three point line then you may be in trouble.
