Bargnani To Compete For Italy In Eurobasket
Andrea Bargnani will compete for Italy in Eurobasket this September in Slovenia.
"I am always happy to play for the Italian National Team," said Bargnani. "Last summer I could not play because of my calf injury. Now, due to my elbow problems I miss playing games but I can't wait to start."
Bargnani was limited to just 35 games last season.
"I got injured for the second consecutive year: last year a calf problem, this season an elbow injury," said Bargnani. "Two probems which forced me to miss a couple of months. I have just started practice again."
The Raptors attempted to trade Bargnani last season, but he remains on the roster and will have a new general manager.
"Today I am a Raptor. Tomorrow we'll see. I am very happy for my years in Toronto. I love the city and in my first three seasons in the NBA we made the postseason. Personally, I think I have always performed well. I don't have any regret."
