Evan Fournier to play in 2022 Eurobasket

- by

France NT will suit up for the 2022 EureoBasket without some notable players, like Nicolas Batum and Nando De Colo. However, Evan Fournier will not be among them. With the New York Knicks failing to make the playoffs, Fournier became easier available for his national team ahead of the next international tournament.
