Blake Griffin, Lamar Odom and Anthony Davis will be spending the July 4th holiday with Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski, auditioning for spots on this summer's Olympic team one day before the official start of training camp. USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo told ESPN.com that an earlier plan to have Griffin and Odom get their health status updated and work out for Krzyzewski and the rest of the coaching staff on the Duke campus this week was scrapped and replaced by the new schedule, which will bring all three big men into Las Vegas just ahead of the July 5 reporting date for the other 15 healthy players on the roster. The only healthy big men regarded as sure bets for the final roster are Miami's Chris Bosh, New York's Tyson Chandler and Minnesota's Kevin Love. It's believed that at least one more big man will be added from the trio of Griffin, Odom and Davis, who is the only Team USA invitee with no NBA experience.
