Lorenzo Brown will be part of Spain’s roster for the upcoming EuroBasket (September 1-18) as a naturalized player.
The American guard spoke with media and said it’s an ‘honor’ for him to join the national team and play in the EuroBasket.
“I’m happy to be here. I want to thank everyone for allowing me to be here. The Federation, the players. It’s an honor to wear this jersey. Honestly, I’ve never thought I’d see myself in this situation.
Playing with these players is going to make me grow because they are part of great teams in Europe and in the NBA,” Lorenzo Brown said, via Eurohoops.net.
