Belinelli is allowed to play in the Eurobasket

Italy coach Carlo Recalcati revealed at this weekend’s EuroChallenge Final Four in Bologna that Golden State Warriors guard Marco Belinelli(1.96-SG/SF) will represent the Azzurri this summer when they attempt to qualify for the EuroBasket in Poland.

Golden State have given their blessing for Belinelli, who just finished his second season in the NBA, to compete for his national team when they go up against France and Finland in the Additional Qualifying Round. 

“I met the Golden State general manager just yesterday and we talked about Belinelli,” Recalcati said to on Friday night. “And Golden State is very happy for Belinelli to play with the national team. “That's good to know that he is with us, the same with (Andrea) Bargnani.”
