During an interview with Basketball.hr, Efes guard Shane Larkin has confirmed his availability to play for Croatia NT if an offer of citizenship would be on the table: “I am definitely open to the idea, just at lunch yesterday I talked about it with Kruno Simon. Play in the Olympics is every athlete’s dream, I’m definitely open to the idea of performing for Croatia, is something I should think about very well this season”.
Larkin has also talked about a possible return to the NBA: “I would definitely love to return to the NBA, but not at all costs. I had offers from the NBA this summer too, but I want a situation where I will be a starter. I love basketball too much to sit on a bench somewhere”.
