Admittedly, Lamar Odom is not having the best season of his career. In fact he never managed to adapt in Dallas and as a result produced the worst numbers in his career.

And as Odom was made inactive for the remainder of the season by the Mavericks, Team USA Head Coach, Mike Krzyzewski, also decided to do the same. Lamar Odom will not be part of the USA Olympic squad.

He is the second player to drop out after Chauncey Billups suffered his season ending injury.
