Luis Scola To Play In Turkey

In the FIBA World Championship, that is. Fanhouse has more: “Luis Scola, weeks removed from agreeing to a fat contract with the Houston Rockets, has received clearance to play for the Argentine national team this summer at the 2010 FIBA World Championship. He has also received clearance to look dreamily toward the East on the Argentina national team’s website. The Argentines will still miss the team’s longtime talisman, Manu Ginobili. But Andres Nocioni, Argentina’s presumptive starting small forward, told Olé he expects Milwaukee Bucks wing Carlos Delfino to fill in admirably and make fans forget about Manu…Argentina is ranked No. 1 in the world by FIBA. The nation finds itself in Kayseri’s Group A, where advancement should be a breeze but Serbia looms as a major early test.”
