In the wake of his banishment from the Dallas Mavericks' active roster for the rest of this season, Lamar Odom has been removed from being a candidate to represent the United States in this summer's Olympic Games.

According to FOX Sports Florida, Odom is no longer on the list of 20 candidates who were originally announced last January to play for Team USA when the Olympics are played this summer in London. That list will eventually be reduced to a 12-man roster.
