Later this month, USA Basketball will announce the preliminary roster for the 2012 Olympics.  Chris Sheridan over at has the scoop with the entire 19-man roster.
Check the list after the jump & let us know what you think (Where’s Rondo?!)…

It was believed that the early roster would be made up of 18 players but one more was included to make room for LaMarcus Aldridge who is having an outstanding season with the Trail Blazers.

Aldridge and Blake Griffin are the only two players that were not on the 2008 Olympics and 2010 World Championships teams.

An official 12-man roster along with alternatives must be submitted to FIBA by mid-June.

Here’s the list alphabetically:

LaMarcus Aldridge
Carmelo Anthony
Chauncey Billups
Chris Bosh
Kobe Bryant
Tyson Chandler
Kevin Durant
Eric Gordon
Blake Griffin
Dwight Howard
Andre Iguodala
LeBron James
Kevin Love
Lamar Odom
Chris Paul
Derrick Rose
Dwyane Wade
Russell Westbrook
Deron Williams
