Cameroonian-Born NBA superstar Joel Embiid is expected to make a decision on his international future in the coming days.
The Philadelphia sixers player has clearly stated his plan is to play in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
Joel Embiid is eligible to play for Cameroon, France and the United States at international level.
During the Philadelphia 76ers‘ media day on Monday, the current NBA MVP declared he would have easily chose Cameroon if they had already qualified for the Paris 2024 Olympics.
“I love all three options,” Embiid told reporters at the Sixers’ media day on Monday.
“Cameroon, I’m born there. I’m from there. I always want to represent my country, but the goal is also to play in Olympics.
“If we had a chance or if we qualified for the Olympics, that would be an easy decision, but that’s still up in the air, and I really do want to play in the Olympics.
“The US, obviously they’ve been struggling the last couple of years trying to get back on the top.
“You also got France, that’s up and coming. I’m just thankful that I’m able to be in that situation.
“It is a tough choice, but probably going to make that decision in the next few days, so we’ll see.”
