Juan Carlos Navarro wants to play at least one more season, as he said in an interview with El Mundo Deportivo. “I will talk with Barcelona when the season ends. I want to play next season. This year I felt good except the two months I have been injured. I think I can help the team, not like in the past, but in some moments of the game. I see the respect of the opposing teams, how players guard me or try to contrast my shots” Navarro added. “Eurobasket? If I am healthy, I would love to play for Spain. That would be my last summer”.

The Spaniards are getting ready for their fourth chance in a row to beat USA in the Olympics and Juan Carlos Navarro believes that his teams has a good chance. According to the Spanish news agency EFE, when Navarro was asked if Spain can win his answer was the following: “There have been other teams in this tournament which have been very close to beat them, so why not us? We have come here to try to win and if we play our cards right and we are ready, why not…”
With Marc Gasol out of the picture, Spain have announced their final roster for the Rio Olympics that start in just over a week. Eurobasket 2015 MVP Pau Gasol is included and Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio makes his return to the international fold after two years. He also makes his first Olympic appearance since the 2008 Beijing Olympics after missing the London Games with a torn ACL. Veteran Juan Carlos Navarro makes his fourth Olympic appearance in what is likely to be the EuroLeague’s all-time leading scorer’s final international showing.

The three most talented players you’ve played with in your career are … Gasol: I guess I got to go with … Kobe, Lamar Odom and, as far as talent goes, I could also say — not [just] in the NBA, right? It could be anywhere. Gasol: Then probably Navarro. Juan Carlos Navarro. I mean Lamar is just so talented. Maybe he wasn’t the caliber of player, a superstar, but he was just, I felt, had a very specific and unique talent that I really enjoyed and embraced and respected.
