Nikola Jokic To Play For Serbia This Summer

Nikola Jokic will play for the Serbia national team this offseason, the basketball federation announced.

“The NBA players have a maximum amount of days they can spend with the national team of their country during the offseason,” said national team director Dragan Tarlac on the agreement between FIBA ​​and the NBA. “Nikola Jokic will be with the national team the first day he can, according to these restrictions.”

Jokic last played for Serbia in 2019 in the FIBA ​​World Cup, where he averaged 11.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.

While Jokic is likely to miss the upcoming FIBA ​​World Cup qualifiers against Latvia and Belgium, he may be ready for the European Qualifiers and EuroBasket in late August and early September.
