“I’m planning to play for the Italian national team, I’m not sure when,” Banchero added. “I haven’t been out there yet, but man, the amount of love I’m getting from there it’s crazy, man. It’s crazy. I can’t wait to go to Italy”.
During a conversation with his Orlando Magic teammate R.J. Hampton, who hosts the show ‘Young Person,’ Banchero explained the process that led him to get the Italian passport. “When I was 16, the Italian national team reached out to my dad,” Banchero explained during the podcast. “They were like, ‘does he have Italian roots? Can he get citizenship? And my dad told them yes. So the whole process started, I flew to San Francisco multiple times to meet them at the Italian embassy, we had a few meetings, and I ended up getting my Italian passport.”
