The FIBA World Cup is currently captivating basketball fans around the world, with high-stakes international tournament action taking place. Among the participants are several players from the Golden State Warriors, who are showcasing their skills on the global stage this summer.
Two notable Warriors players, Dario Saric and Lester Quinones, are currently representing their respective countries in the FIBA World Cup. However, their coach, Steve Kerr, is also involved in the tournament, but not as a coach for any of his own players. Instead, Kerr has taken the reins of Team USA in their quest for glory.
While Kerr may not have any Warriors players on his roster, another member of the Golden State coaching staff has been making waves in international play. Assistant coach Chris DeMarco has been instrumental in helping the Bahamas perform admirably this summer. With DeMarco’s assistance, the Bahamas is showing great promise and gaining attention for their impressive performances.
The standout play from the Bahamas has led to speculation about the possibility of one of the Warriors’ star players, Klay Thompson, joining their national team in the future. Thompson, known as one-half of the Warriors’ “Splash Brothers,” has strong ties to the Bahamas through his father and older brother. With family connections to the nation, rumors are swirling that Thompson may consider switching teams.
However, a potential transfer for Thompson would have to be approved by FIBA, as he has previously played for Team USA. Even if he doesn’t make the cut for Team USA, it might be challenging for Thompson to find a spot on their roster due to their surplus of guard talent. Nonetheless, this could create an opportunity for Thompson to become a leader for the Bahamas and contribute to their success in international basketball.
While nothing is certain at this point, there is a chance that Thompson could don the colors of the Bahamas in the near future. It remains to be seen if Thompson would be interested in making the switch and if FIBA would allow the transfer. However, if all the pieces fall into place, basketball fans could witness Thompson’s talents on display for the Bahamas in next summer’s international competitions.
