Italy look to be full strength for Eurobasket 2015

Italy’s NBAers Andrea Bargnani, Danilo Gallinari, Gigi Datome and Marco Bellinelli look poised to play at Eurobasket 2015 in September.

Bargnani, Gallinari and Datome met up with national team coach Simone Pianigiani and Italian Basketball Federation president Gianni Petrucci in New York for dinner as the NBA All-Star Weekend is ongoing in the city.

Belinelli himself did not attend the dinner as he was busy with events related to the weekend. The Spurs guard will compete in the three-point contest where he will defend the crown that he won last year.

The 28-year-old Bellinelli though has already said that he will play this summer as Italy are housed with Turkey, Spain, Serbia, hosts Germany and Iceland.
