Eric Musselman hopes to return for a third stint as head coach of the Venezuelan national team.

"I would like to continue with the national team," said Musselman. "I feel a special tie with the players and the Venezuelan federation.”

Musselman plans to speak again with Venezuelan Basketball Federation president Carmelo Cortez to discuss his contract, which expired after the World Olympic Qualifying Tournament in July.

Venezuela failed to advance to the knockout stage of the tournament, registering a loss to Lithuania in the preliminary round.

"(Cortez) received me and my wife in the new offices of the Federation just days after our game against Lithuania," Musselman said. "We had a productive meeting. I'm sure we'll talk soon."
