Lamar Odom Olympic Watch: Tyson Chandler, Kevin Love Only Big Men On Team USA

With No. 1 overall draft pick Anthony Davis suffering a severely sprained ankle in a workout with the New Orleans Hornets, it opens up the possibilities of Lamar Odom being invited to play on the team. As of right now, the only big men on the team are Tyson Chandler and Kevin Love.

Guys like Chris Bosh and Dwight Howard won't be in London this summer, and USA could realistically head to the Olympics a bit undersized.

Adding Odom, who played well in the World Championships in 2010, would give them the versatility that Odom's game provides, along with some size. Odom was mostly ineffective for the Dallas Mavericks last season, as he was unhappy in being traded from the Los Angeles Lakers team that he'd won a pair of championships with.

Now Odom is back in LA, with Clippers, where his NBA career began.
