London Calling on the Clippers

USA Basketball will announce the finalists for the 2012 men's basketball Olympic team Monday afternoon. Blake Griffin and Chris Paul are virtual locks to make the team. A source with knowledge of the process confirmed to ESPNLosAngeles.com Sunday that Griffin's spot is secure.

It'll be interesting to see if Chauncey Billups is on the preliminary roster as well, and if so, if he'll be asked to play shooting guard as he did with USA Basketball at the World Championships in 2010.
