Luka Garza is set to enforce himself to Bosnia and Herzegovina in the coming months.

The nation’s basketball federation announced on Sunday that Garza will join them during the training camp in order to fight for his official spot.

“It’s a great honor for me and my family to represent the country where my mother was born. It’s an honor that fills my heart with immeasurable joy, [it was] my dream since childhood,” he said. “I can’t wait for the moment when I’ll share the basketball court with my teammates from the national team and do my best for Coach Adis [Beciragic], the coaching staff, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.”

Garza, 25, was drafted by the Detroit Pistons last year in the second round. He went on to finish this season as a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves, averaging 6.5 points and 2.3 boards in 28 games played.

The big man was born in the United States, but his mother is a Bosnian which serves as his basis to play for the country.
