Considered a longshot when he was invited to try out for the French national team last month, Wizards forward Kevin Seraphin made the final 12-man roster for Eurobasket in Lithuania. He will join a roster that includes fellow NBA players Tony Parker, Joakim Noah, Boris Diaw, Nicolas Batum and Ronny Turiaf. France Coach Vincent Collet made his final cuts after the French team was routed by Spain, 77-53, in a friendly on Wednesday. Serpahin was a surprising selection since Collet had originally brought him along as an alternate as the team prepared for the Olympic qualifying tournament, which will run from Aug. 31 to Sept. 18. Collet was forced to make some adjustments to the roster, especially after Phoenix Suns swingman Mickael Pietrus was forced to leave the team after having surgery on his injured right knee. But Collet added that Seraphin earned his spot based on his performance during training camp and exhibitions. Washington Post

Fresh from the completion of his basketball camp in his native French Guyana, Kevin Seraphin arrived in Paris on early Tuesday, just in time to train with the French national team as it prepares for the European championships in Lithuania later this summer. And, if the NBA lockout continues to drag on, there is a strong possibility that the Wizards big man will remain in France to continue his professional basketball career. Washington Post

Seraphin’s agent, Bouna Ndiaye, said his client has received interest from several European teams who hope to sign the 6-foot-9 forward who averaged 2.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in his rookie season with the Wizards. More than likely, Ndiaye said, Seraphin will look to return to his former team, Cholet Basket, which developed Seraphin when he left for France at age 16. “We’re starting to talk and see what the options are in case this thing lasts longer than we expected,” Ndiaye said of the lockout. “If nothing is moving, then we’ll probably just get him to a team, maybe his French team, to not take any risk of a new environment and keeping from getting better. We’re kind of waiting a little bit to see what’s going on.” Washington Post

JaVale McGee pulled out his iPad2, tapped the screen, leaned back in front of his locker room stall and started laughing. “Kevin,” McGee said, calling over rookie Kevin Seraphin, who made the blooper reel during the Wizards’ 100-93 season finale loss in Cleveland. Late in the first period, Jordan Crawford spotted Seraphin cutting to the basket and made a beautiful no-look pass. Problem was, Seraphin wasn’t looking either and the ball popped him in the face before going out of bounds. “Yeah,” McGee said with a laugh, as he showed the replay to Seraphin. Seraphin stared blankly at the screen and quietly walked away as McGee continued to laugh. Washington Post

Dropping in on new Washington Wizards Hilton Armstrong and Kevin Seraphin as they signed autographs during a Verizon Center open house on Thursday, a brief conversation with the former revealed that perhaps not all the players have found out that the team will open training camp with Midnight Madness at 12 a.m. on Sept. 28 at Patriot Center. “I didn’t hear about it,” said Armstrong. “Just like college, that’s how their doing it? It’s fun – as long as there’s a big crowd. I don’t want to do it with like six people there. If it’s a good crowd, then it’ll definitely be fun.” Washington Examiner
