When it’s completely selectable for paper and physical reasons, I don’t see why it wasn’t selected. We have always taken the best players and I consider that from the moment he is selectable, he belongs to this category.“, confirmed the coach of the France team about one of the star players of the NBA, five times All-Star.


The French engaged in Russian or Belarusian clubs are “no longer selectable”


If he had been selectable this summer, we would have asked ourselves the question

He still has to obtain his French passport and the FIBA ​​license, which could allow him to be selected for the France team. He would have liked to play at the Euro (September 1-18). If he had been selectable this summer, we would have asked ourselves the question“, said the general manager of the Blues, Boris Diaw. With the Philadelphia Sixers, the Franco-Cameroonian pivot (28 years old, 2.13m) finished top scorer in the regular season with an average of 30.6 points per game.
