USA Basketball officially announced their 12-man roster for the 2012 Olympics today, which will include the face of the Philadelphia 76ers franchise, Andre Iguodala.

From CBS Sports:

After deliberation between USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo and a coaching staff led by Mike Krzyzewski, the roster's final two spots went to Philadelphia 76ers forward Andre Iguodala and Oklahoma City Thunder guard James Harden, according to the Associated Press. Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com has confirmed the roster decisions.

That left New Orleans Hornets forward Anthony Davis, Hornets guard Eric Gordon and Memphis Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay left as the team's "cuts" from its group of 15 finalists. All three will remain on stand-by in the event of injury.

Joining Iguodala and Harden will be: LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love, Tyson Chandler, and Blake Griffin.

In case you needed conformation, Dre's pretty good at basketball. Big congrats to him – he definitely deserved the spot.
