Default Tyson Chandler named #1 alternate for Team USA

New Orleans Hornets center Tyson Chandler has been invited to travel with Team USA to the Beijing Olympics as the No. 1 alternate, ESPN.com has learned.


That means Chandler can be added to the active roster until Aug. 6 in the event of injury to one of the 12 active roster members.

i think chandler needs to be on the roster. The only center is Dwight Howard. the power forwards are boozer and bosh. THATS IT! Carmelo has a good post game, Lebron can rebound and has strenght but he doesnt post up. the big man depht is a concern.

and i know they are real good but there are three point guards in the roster between Kidd-Paul-Deron. and only one true center. and two power forwards.

Tyson to train with Team USA

Hornets center Tyson Chandler has accepted an invitation to train with the U.S. men's Olympic basketball team and will join it for training camp next week in Las Vegas, USA Basketball officials announced Tuesday.

It is unclear if Chandler will accompany the team to Beijing for the Olympic Games on Aug. 8-24.

Among six alternates selected for the team, Chandler is the only one invited to camp. His addition gives the team insurance in case starting center Dwight Howard does not recover fully from a chest injury that sidelined the Orlando Magic star for the team's one-day minicamp last month.

But he may not be needed because Dwight says he'll be ready.

Tyson has an inflamed big toe that will cause him to miss practice this week with Team USA. With Dwight's injury doing better, hopefully they won't need Tyson and he can get that toe healthy in time for training camp.

LAS VEGAS -- Tyson Chandler won't practice with the U.S. Olympic team next week because he has an inflamed big toe.

The New Orleans center wasn't selected for the team, but was invited to training camp in case he was needed to replace an injured player. Instead, USA Basketball announced Saturday that Chandler was the one who was hurt.
