07:47 AM ET 06.19 | Pistons guard Chauncey Billups withdrew his name from consideration for the U.S. Olympic basketball team Tuesday, according to a report by ESPN. Billups was under consideration for one of the two final guard spots, competing with Chris Paul of the Hornets and Deron Williams of the Jazz. The final roster for the Beijing Olympics is to be announced Monday. Craig Miller, a USA Basketball representative, would not comment specifically on Billups on Tuesday. He only would state all roster issues will be completed and discussed publicly next week. ESPN reported Billups called USA Basketball director Jerry Colangelo to quit, citing a family concern.
