Luka Doncic will play for the Slovenian national team at the FIBA ​​World Cup 2023

Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic loves playing for his country in international competitions. He helped them win EuroBasket 2017 before finishing fourth at the 2020 Olympics. Luka was leaving at EuroBasket 2022 before Slovenia suffered a shock upset in the quarter-finals. Doncic wants to help his country win all the biggest tournaments, and he will have another chance next summer.

Slovenia clinched a World Cup spot without Doncic last week. Luka helped them qualify over the summer, but the remaining games were during the NBA season, so they had to finish the job without their best player. Slovenia have earned their place and will be ready to face the best teams in the world next summer.

Doncic has already signed up to represent his country at the FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup 2023. It should come as no surprise, but here’s a look at what Slovenian basketball president Matej Erjavec had to say about Luka playing in the first event.

Doncic wasted no time committing to play for his country as Erjavec told RTV in Slovenia.

“Luka confirmed his participation one minute after the game against Germany, when he was certain that we would go to the championship.”

The World Cup is the second biggest competition on FIBA’s four-year calendar behind the Olympics. Slovenia have never won a World Cup medal and Doncic plans to change that next summer.

The 23-year-old superstar is committed to developing the game in Slovenia, and he still wants to represent his country. Remember, Doncic could have played for Spain but he opted to stay with his home country as he tries to put them on the basketball map. Slovenia failed to qualify for the 2019 World Cup but finished seventh in 2014 before Doncic made the squad.

Luka Doncic won’t be happy until Slovenia win the FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup 2023, and fans know he’ll put on a show for his country. It won’t miss the TV, so be sure to tune in next summer and enjoy the games.
