As expected, Nikola Jokic will play for Serbia at EuroBasket this summer
Two-time MVP Nikola Jokic takes pride in playing for his native Serbia and it’s now confirmed he will be doing so late this summer, just before NBA training camps open.
As expected, Jokic will suit up for Serbia in EuroBasket, which tips off in September, however, he has not yet reported to the team. The head of the Serbian national team confirmed everything, via EuroHoops.net.
Jokic last played for Serbia in the 2019 World Cup.
By reporting to his national team later, Jokic can play for Serbia in the August round of World Cup qualifying games, then play in EuroBasket.
Many of the NBA’s top European players are expected to play in EuroBasket this year, including Luka Doncic with Slovenia. The Slovenian national team faced a challenge getting the required insurance for Doncic and Goran Dragic to play, but that is expected to be worked out.
