Sheridan: Williams and Howard On List For 2012 Olympics

It's been reported that USA Basketball will name 18 players later this month to a preliminary roster for the 2012 Olympics in London. But Chris Sheridan reports that the number will actually be 19 (with LaMarcus Aldridge as a late addition).

Sheridan has the full list, which expectedly includes eight of the 12 players from the 2008 Olympic team. Among them are Deron Williams and Dwight Howard. Williams is one of five point guards on the list, with Chauncey Billups, Chris Paul, Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook being the other four.

The Olympics take place from July 28 to August 12. The final 12-man roster will need to be submitted in mid-June and training camp is expected to open on July 5.
