ESPN: New Orleans Hornets center Tyson Chandler has been invited to travel with Team USA to the Beijing Olympics as the No. 1 alternate, ESPN.com has learned.
That means Chandler can be added to the active roster until Aug. 6 in the event of injury to one of the 12 active roster members.
Team USA's other five alternates will be Kevin Durant, Joe Johnson, Mike Miller, Chauncey Billups and Shawn Marion.
Smart move, especially considering Superman's injury.
