Tyler Dorsey has informed the Greek Basketball Federation that he won’t be joining the national team for the 2019 World Cup (China, 31/8 – 15/9) due to personal reasons, the Federation announced.
He thanked the Federation for the invitation to join the preliminary roster and expressed his upset for this development, per the Federation’s announcement.
Dorsey had asked to take some days off from the training camp of the Greek national team due to his status as a free agent. The 23-year-old combo guard is hoping to get a contract with an NBA club.
The 2019 World Cup would mark Dorsey’s third tournament appearance with the Greek national team. The former Atlanta Hawks and Memphis Grizzlies guard previously played in the 2016 Olympic Qualifiers plus the World Cup Qualifiers.
