Ricky Rubio and Guillermo “Willy” Hernangomez are gearing up to represent Spain at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019. Both NBA players are enthusiastic about the upcoming campaign in China, where Spain appear to have received a favorable draw in Group C with Tunisia, Iran and Puerto Rico. Getting to the Quarter-Finals will not be straightforward, however, as Spain – if they claim a top-two finish in that pool – would have to finish in the top two of Second Round Group J, which will also have the top two sides from a Group D consisting of Serbia, Italy, Philippines and Angola. “I’m happy to go with Spain,” Rubio, who played at the 2010 and 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cups, said to Radio Marca. “But I would need the okay of my (NBA) team.”

Ricky Rubio and Willy Hernangomez are getting ready to join the Spanish selection at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019. Per FIBA.basketball, both NBA players are enthusiastic about the upcoming campaign in China, where Spain appears to have received a favorable draw in Group C with Tunisia, Iran, and Puerto Rico. “I’m happy to go with Spain,” Rubio said to Radio Marca. “But I would need the okay of my (NBA) team. It’s also a condition that I’ll have to speak when the team decides because, if it’s true that the final decision (to play for the national team) is ours as players, you don’t want to start badly with your new team”, he added as adapted by FIBA.
There might not be a closer friend to Porzingis in the league than Hernangomez, who spent about 1 ½ seasons with the Knicks before being traded last year to Charlotte. Hernangomez was shocked when he heard Porzingis was dealt. “In the beginning when I saw it I was very surprised, thinking he was the future of the Knicks organization,” Hernangomez told The News. “But you could tell the things for KP it wasn’t working in a good way, in the best way for him.”
