Ben Gordon, who was born in London, has joined Luol Deng on Britain's roster for this summer's European Championship qualifiers. Britain will play six games in late August/early September trying to qualify for 2009 EuroBasket in Poland and an eventual berth as London plays host to the 2012 Olympic Games.
There's no guarantee Gordon will play, but he's now eligible.
Interesting but very good news for British basketball fans
Still no guarantee, but at least he's on the roster, so he must have some interest in playing.
