Tony Parker is determined to return to French national team this summer after one-year break. 29-year-old NBA star confirmed his intention in a recent interview he gave to a French TV sports show ‘Stade 2’.
San Antonio Spurs point guard is excited to make a comeback especially since Joakim Noah recently expressed desire to make his debut for France this summer.
For Parker having someone like Noah inside the paint is key to winning because in Europe teams that have talented inside players achieve success.
France will face EuroBasket 2009 finalists Serbia, Germany, Italy, Israel and Latvia in Group B in Siauliai.
More stars are expected to return to their national teams after skipping 2010. Among them is Dirk Nowitzki, Pau Gasol and Tony Parker.
