Report: Anthony Davis to be Olympic team candidate

Sam Amick of SI.com reports that his sources say Anthony Davis will be added as a finalist to the U.S. Olympic roster.

An excerpt:

In the wake of serious injuries that have decimated Team USA’s roster of Olympic finalists, sources said Kentucky big man and projected No. 1 pick Anthony Davis has been selected as a replacement candidate to compete in the London Games this summer.

USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo and the coaching staff headed by Mike Krzyzewski will be adding one other player, with both picks expected to be announced later Wednesday. According to sources, players under consideration were Pistons center Greg Monroe, Jazz center Al Jefferson and Kings center DeMarcus Cousins. But Cousins, sources said, has been invited to the Select team — which will train with Team USA before the Olympics — and is not the other finalist addition.
