Luis Scola expressed his intention to retire after the 2021 Olympic Games, which will take place in Tokyo next July.

This will be a record fifth appearance for Scola in the Olympic Games as a member of Argentina.

“When will it end? In a year, after the Olympics. Only then I will decide what to do. I could stay involved in basketball, but not as a coach, eventually, only for young players.

Scola, who is considered one of the best players in the history of Argentina, is currently playing for Vareze of the Italian League.
