Spencer Dinwiddie is expected to acquire Nigerian passport and play for the national team, per Shams Charania of the Athletic.

Dinwiddie will not be the first NBA player to play for Nigeria as the team’s roster already features NBA players Josh Okogie, Al-Farouq Aminu and Chimezie Metu.

Nigeria has qualified for the Tokyo Olympics, which will take place in July 2021.
