Very important for success: Kevin Yebo (28). The center (2.07 meters) averages 17.1 points and 5.6 rebounds per game in the Bundesliga.

In the European Cup he averages 10.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.

His contract in Chemnitz expires at the end of the season. Whether he stays or not – open!

And Yebo has another decision to make. Does he want to play for the German national team or would he rather play for the Ivory Coast? His father comes from the African country.

Both associations are trying to get him. Most recently, national coach Gordon Herbert (65) asked Yebo for the European Championship qualifiers in February. But Yebo had canceled because he wanted to relax and spend time with his family.

But this is not a final decision against the DBB. Yebo to SPORT BILD: “Who I will play for is still up in the air. Both associations have expressed their interest. But they don’t put pressure on me and are patient. Want to wait for the end of the season. That’s the plan – I want to concentrate on the final spurt with Chemnitz first. When the season is over, I will ponder. And make a decision.”

As world champions, Germany has already qualified for the Olympic Games. However, the players who won gold for Germany in Manila in the summer of 2023 have a bonus from national coach Herbert.

Ivory Coast still has to qualify and is playing in San Juan/Puerto Rico for a ticket to Paris. The group opponents are Mexico and Lithuania. The hosts, Italy and Bahrain play in the other group. Only the winner of the tournament qualifies for the Olympics.

Now Yebo’s first step is to hit the BBL. On Sunday (5 p.m., WELT TV and Dyn live) we’re going to BG Göttingen.
