Davis On Team USA?

Blake Griffin is out for the time being with a sprained knee…and that leaves the door open for an alternate.

That alternate, Anthony Davis.

The former Cat and now New Orleans Hornet is on his way to Las Vegas and could even suit up tonight against his former college coach.

Team USA takes on the Coach Cal led Dominican Republic at 9 ET on ESPN.

If Griffin checks out okay before the London games later this month, then Davis goes back to bench-warming for the big boys.

Should he make the Olympics, he’d be the third player with no NBA experience since 1992 to make the cut.  (Laettner and Okafor).
