You can scratch one name off this year's Dream Team roster: Kobe Bryant.

The Los Angeles Lakers star says his legal problems will probably prevent him from playing in the Summer Olympics in Athens.

Bryant's agent released a statement saying he informed USA Basketball he probably couldn't compete because of scheduling conflicts with his trial. The agent says his client informed the organization now so they would be able to bring a replacement player.

Bryant is accused of raping a hotel worker at a resort near Vail.
