Juancho Hernangomez is willing to play for the Spanish national team in EuroBasket 2022, according to Gigantes del Basket.

"I always want to go to the National Team, and I really want to," said Juancho in an interview with the Spanish magazine.

The Spaniard has reiterated his intention to be in the event if the coach, Sergio Scariolo, decides to count on him after not being able to play in the last Olympic Games due to the refusal of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The former Utah Jazz power forward has confirmed his willingness to play in the upcoming event. Spain will play the Phase Group in Tbilisi (Georgia) with Montenegro, Georgia, Bulgaria, Belgium, and Turkey.

Regarding his future, Hernangomez admitted he wants to stay in Utah Jazz, with whom he has played the NBA playoffs this season, although it does not depend on him.

The franchise has an option of 6.6 million dollars that can be executed if they decide to keep him for next season.

Juancho Hernangomez will appear on the big screen alongside Adam Sandler, in which will be his first film as an actor. He plays a young talent discovered by an NBA scout before making the leap to the United States.
