Following GB’s 95-72 win over a stubborn Luxembourg on Wednesday night, which improved Great Britain’s record in Eurobasket qualifying to 2-1, Gordon remained open to the idea of a move to the EuroLeague but insists that the NBA still remains the main priority. “I’m open to any contract offers, obviously the NBA is my main goal but if the offer in the EuroLeague is good, it will be a great opportunity for me,” Gordon said to TalkBasket. “End of the day though, I’m just going to look at my options and evaluate what’s best for me and if it falls in the NBA or the EuroLeague or elsewhere, then I’ll head there.”
British basketball fans will finally get to see NBA star Ben Gordon in a GB vest this weekend. The London-born, US-raised shooting guard is part of head coach Joe Prunty’s squad for two friendlies against the Netherlands at Belle Vue’s National Performance Centre on Friday and Saturday. Supporters could have been forgiven for thinking they would never get to witness the sight of the former Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons scorer in the colours of his country, with GB bosses pursuing him for almost a decade.

Ben Gordon eyeing NBA return

Ben Gordon will spend the next few weeks playing for Great Britain’s men’s national basketball team — with an eye on an NBA return. Gordon, 33, will suit up for Britain for the first time during qualifiers for Eurobasket 2017 next month. The 11-year NBA veteran hopes to help the British qualify for Europe’s biggest tournament while showing talent evaluators that he can still play at an elite level.

Are you still looking for a chance to return to the NBA? Ben Gordon: Yeah, definitely. I would definitely love to get back in the league after being out for a year. Just watching the way the game is being played, up and down. Obviously, the 3-point shot is always a big deal but it seems like just now, more than ever, that shot is being used more and more. So I feel like I can still play at a high level and shoot that 3-ball and add that kind of depth to a team that may be looking to fulfill that need. So yeah, I definitely have hopes of making a return with an NBA team or just playing period, wherever that may be.
