John Calipari: Charlie Villanueva cut from Dominican Republic national team for being ‘overweight’

Charlie Villanueva has been cut from the Dominican Republic national team by Coach John Calipari, according to FIBA (hat tip: Mike Payne of Detroit Bad Boys):

"Charlie was not in good form when we saw him," Calipari said to Deportes en la Z.

"He was overweight, and unfortunately, we could not slow down the entire team and it was a decision taken collectively.

"Last year, Charlie behaved really well with us and his only problem was his weight.

It’s really stunning that Villanueva could go from being “in really good shape” in late March to being overweight now. Or maybe it’s not.
