The Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) said the decision to represent Nigeria at the Olympics or future international events rests solely on individual players.
NBBF President, Engr. Musa Kida made this known as calls for inclusion of rising Nigerian stars who recently got drafted into the National Basketball Association (NBA) league grows
Eight players of Nigerian descent currently dominate the 2021 draft class and the federation believes that the D’Tigers Technical crew has enough selection worries in future if things go according to plans.
Kida reiterated that in line with the board’s decision to give all Nigerians an opportunity to represent their fatherland, the door is open to any interested player who wants to suit up for the teams (men and women).
“My sworn sense of fairness for all Nigerians is that we invite the best we can figure at any time. So, yes, they are on our radar and they are in constant talks with the technical team, which is really in charge of contact with players.
