Dinwiddie Acquires Nigerian Citizenship, to Play for National Team

The Nigerian national team just received a boost ahead of the 2021 Tokyo Olympic qualifiers.

After failing to receive an invite to the Team USA pre-Olympics camp, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that Brooklyn Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie has acquired a Nigerian passport and will suit up with the Nigerian national in next Summer’s qualifiers.

The guard will join a handful of NBA players already representing the African nation, including Al-Farouq Aminu, Josh Okogie, and Epke Udoh. The team is also coached by former NBA head coach Mike Brown.

Dinwiddie was in the midst of a career season this year, averaging 20.6 points and 6.8 assists per game.
