Con all European stars who play in the NBA already on vacation, the desire of some of them to participate with their national teams in the next Eurobasket, which will be played from September 1 to 18 in four venues (Tbilisi, Poland, Milan and Prague) and whose final phase will host Berlin.
The pvot of the Utah Jazz Rudy Gobert confirmed in an interview with L’Equipe to be in the Eurobasket with France. “I’ve been clear about it for a few days. Deciding has taken me some time.

“Once I had an MRI done to make sure there were no problems, I was able to organize my summer. It was important that everything was clear in my head before committing. The fact that Evan [Fournier] is there is a factor, I love going to war with him,” he explained.
Another one that is sure to be in the Eurobasket is Luka Doncić. the star of the Mavericks He has always shown an unwavering commitment to Slovenia, and after completing a great season in the NBA, he is clear that he wants to lead his team: “I always say that if I don’t get injured or anything, playing with the national team. I think starting training in two weeks, we will play the qualifying matches for the World Cup and then we will prepare for the Eurobasket. A busy summer,” said the ex-Madrid player in a statement collected by FIBA.
