Anthony Davis at summer league
Davis was in Las Vegas last week for U.S. Olympic team tryouts, but a sore left ankle hampered his already slim chances to make the 12-man roster for the London Games.
The 6-foot-11 Davis is now an Olympic alternate and is available to join New Orleans' summer league squad for its five-game schedule running from July 15-21.
The Hornets announced their full 15-player summer league roster on Monday. There are 11 rookies on the squad, including 2012 draft picks Austin Rivers and Darius Miller, as well as 6-11, 255-pound center Darko Planinic, a free agent from Bosnia.
