Following the Zadar Tournament finale, Shane Larkin spoke to about possibly joining the Croatian National Team if the chance is presented.

“I can say that I am definitely open to the idea”, said Larkin when asked about how he would react to the idea of receiving Croatian citizenship and the chance to play for the national selection.

“It would definitely be nice to play in the Olympics. It’s every athlete’s dream. Of course, I would prefer playing for the USA, but given the situation, I am definitely open to the idea of ​​performing for Croatia. This is something I should think about very well this season. There are a lot of factors that need to be addressed and I should hear from responsible people what would be expected of me. But the idea is certainly interesting”, Larkin added.

The Anadolu Efes player also clarified there is no offer from the Turkish National Team.

“There have been no official offers, but it is rumored that this could happen. We will see, the season is just beginning and there is time for important decisions”, he commented.
