Alexey Shved on choosing between the club and national team: “It shouldn’t be like that”

Khimki guard Alexey Shved spoke with the official website of the Russian Basketball Federation and referred to the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers.

Here is what the Russian guard said:

On playing for the national team in the next FIBA windows (November and February): “I also hope that we will qualify. Will I play for the national team during the season? Let’s see how it works out. I would like to play for both the club and the national team, but it’s not for me to decide.”

On how complicated things have become with the Qualifiers: “We will think about this together with the leadership of Khimki and communicate with the team. We were put in such a situation that we have to choose between the club and the national team. It shouldn’t be like that.”
