Poland basketball fans must bide their time a little longer before knowing if Asseco Prokom's explosive guard David Logan will be able to play for the country this summer at the EuroBasket.
The American, who is currently involved in the Polish domestic play-offs with Prokom, has applied for a passport. "Right now we do not have the passport," a spokesperson at the Poland Basketball Federation said to Basketball World News.
"We're waiting for the decision. Right now, all of the documents are with the President of Poland. If the President signs it, then we will have the decision that he will have the passport." Logan, 26, is the leading scorer in Poland's top flight at 18.8 points per game. In the Euroleague, Logan averaged 16.9 points.
Logan had an outstanding collegiate career at Indianapolis and was voted NCAA Division II Player of the Year in 2005. In Europe, he had stints in Italy and Israel before moving to Poland. Poland, meanwhile, also have their eyes on the NBA where big center Marcin Gortat of the Orlando Magic is involved in a thrilling play-off series with the Boston Celtics. Gortat is playing an average of 12 and a half minutes per game.
When Orlando's starting center Dwight Howard was suspended for a game in the first-round series against Philadelphia, the 2.11m Gortat played 40 minutes and had 11 points and 15 rebounds. EuroBasket hosts Poland will play in Group D with Lithuania, Turkey and Bulgaria.
