The "Dream Shake" is going to have to wait.

Knicks center Tyson Chandler told reporters in London that he will not attend Hakeem Olajuwon's big man camp this summer.

Amare Stoudemire is currently training with Olajuwon in Houston, and there was speculation that Chandler would join him after the Olympics.

But Chandler told the New York Post that he wouldn't be attending due to "logistical issues."

Chandler has also dealt with injury issues this summer. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year dislocated a finger on his right hand while working out before the Olympics.

He left Team USA's win over Tunisia midway through the fourth quarter after apparently aggravating the injury.

In his Olympic diary for ESPNNewYork.com, Chandler said that he would be "fine."

"For those of you who are worried about my left-hand injury from the Tunisia game, it's feeling better," Chandler said in his Aug. 2 entry. "I dislocated my finger right before Team USA training camp in Las Vegas, and it swelled up on me. I was trying to get in shape and I was playing pickup, and I dislocated it. It is what it is, but I'll be fine."
