Could Josh Nebo be the missing piece for Slovenia in Olympic Qualifiers?

Slovenia – The American interior could be approached by the Slovenian federation to come and help Luka Doncic and his teammates for the TQO in Athens.

What if a new American came to strengthen Slovenia? After Mike Tobey, pillar of the Slovenian team for several international competitions, and Jordan Morgan, Josh Nebo would be in the sights of the federation according to information from BasketNews.

The idea would be to seek out this interior for the pre-Olympic tournament (TQO), played in Athens in July, in order to secure a place for the Paris Olympic Games. The mission will not be easy: we will have to get by despite competition from Greece, the Dominican Republic, Egypt, Croatia and New Zealand.

But who is Josh Nebo? A 2m06 interior, born in Houston, he played with Texas A&M in the NCAA and left the university in 2020. Since then, he has

has a career in Lithuania and Israel, at Maccabi Tel Aviv since 2022. This year, he is averaging 11.1 points and 7.3 rebounds in the Euroleague.

Slovenia imagines him as a complement to Luka Doncic and for that, we must offer him a passport. He already holds a Nigerian passport but problems with the local federation have limited his options with this selection. Finally, remember that FIBA ​​only allows one naturalized player in the squad of each nation for international competitions. Which means that he would take Tobey’s place if the coach really counts on him.
