"To have him (Pau) available would be important. Not to have him would be a great loss but we can't stop and cry too much because we would have to be more united as a group and try to find solutions."
Scariolo said and continued:
"I don't want to talk about Pau's loss because I think about the possibility that he will be there, Pau has not yet taken a decision. He is evaluating it with a lot of seriousness and interest at the possibility of being there. I prefer to think positively in what he could bring to the team."
Pau Gasol is playing in long NBA Finals series for the second year in a row and despite the fact that it will be extremely difficult for him to join the Spanish National Team for the Eurobasket, Scariolo will be hoping until the last moment.
