Ajani Williams Rumors
Ajani Williams, president of the Jamaica Basketball Association (JaBA), said National Basketball Association (NBA) player Roy Hibbert has asked the administration for a release in order to become eligible to play for the United States at this summer’s Olympic Games. “He (Hibbert’s agent) said they were grateful to us for having him playing with our team because he has a shot at playing with Team USA, and so they would like JaBA to release him from the national team,” said Williams during an interview with The Gleaner yesterday.
However, there are some compliance issues that have to be worked out with USA Basketball and the world governing body FIBA. “Our simple response was that we can’t just handle this matter from JaBA to the player or from JaBA to the agent, and so on, it has to be from JaBA to the USA Basketball Federation,” said Williams.
