Detroit Pistons forward Gigi Datome met with Italian National Team head coach Simone Pianigiani and officially confirmed that he'll play for Italy next summer.
Italy missed the qualification to FIBA World Cup and will play Eurobasket QR against Russia and Switzerland.
“At the end of the NBA season I will remain in Detroit to work” said Datome. “But next summer I will play for Italu. It is going to be my 14th with Italy and I am proud of that” added Datome.
