Brandon Roy Wants to Play in 2012 Olympics

Twenty-seven players are in a pool to be selected for this year’s World Championships in Turkey and the 2012 Olympics in London.

"I still hope so," Roy said of playing in London. "Besides winning the NBA championship, that also has been a dream of mine to have a gold medal. But I kind of had to choose right now (whether or not be on the roster).

"If there’s a chance, I’m healthy and playing well and somebody can’t play that year, you never know what happens. I would love to try to play. If they are looking for a reserve, I would raise my hand and say, ‘Here I am.’ I would love to try then if the opportunity presents itself."
