After appearing in the latest FIBA World Cup, Lithuania forward Domantas Sabonis has confirmed his will to play in the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament for Tokyo 2020.
In an interview with FIBA, Pacers forward has confirmed his intention to play in the upcoming tournament: “It’s going to be a very intense tournament as every team dreams about competing in Tokyo 2020. It’s what we have to go through to qualify for the next Olympics, and we’re going to battle to win the tournament and get a ticket for Japan. I always love to represent my country and I’d like to help it play on this fantastic stage that is the Olympics. We have to go through an extra tournament to reach that goal, but we’ll embrace this opportunity and try to make the most of it to seal a spot for the Olympic games.”
