Sergio Scariolo talked to El Transistor shortly after the NBA shut down all activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, about the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

The Spanish NT head coach addressed the issue, stating that at this timeframe, the Olympic Games cannot take place as initially planned.

“Everything is subject more to the general feeling than to the data, but on a personal level, it will be difficult to think about the Olympics being held… I see it as borderline impossible”, he mentioned.

FIBA has already suspended all competitions across the globe, while there is yet not an official update concerning the 2020 Olympics, set to start on July 24.
