Odom on U.S. roster

Team USA must make one more cut before finalizing its roster for the World Championships later this month in Turkey, but Lakers sixth man Lamar Odom advanced to the list of 13 on Sunday. Odom has said a couple of times that he’s out of shape, but he looked pretty active during the Americans’ exhibition rout Sunday of France at Madison Square Garden. Rudy Gay of Memphis and the Clippers’ Eric Gordon looked sharp, too. The final 13 traveled to Madrid today for practices this week, plus exhibitions Saturday against Lithuania and Spain. There’s only exhibition against Greece in Athens on Aug. 25. The Americans open play in the World Championships Aug. 28 against Croatia.
