Former Captain of Nigeria’s basketball national team D’Tigers Olumide Oyedeji has stated that efforts to convince NBA All-stars and Miami Heats Nigerian-American player Eedris Bam Adebayo to play for Nigeria will be a very tough task.
Oyedeji speaking in a chat with brila.net said Nigeria is actually going for a player who narrowly missed out on a place in the USA men national team squad to the 2019 FIBA world cup in China having been invited to be part of the team’s camping before the world cup.
He added that with an improved season and now a brighter chance for him to make the American team, it will be a wild goose chase trying to convince the Miami Heats player to think Nigeria.
