Malcolm Brogdon Reportedly Wants To Play For The Polish National Basketball Team

Malcolm Brogdon

Malcolm Brogdon is currently a guard for the Indiana Pacers. He is well-known for his sharpshooting ability, though he is also a very capable facilitator. Currently, Malcolm Brogdon is averaging 18.5 PPG, 5.1 RPG, and 5.8 APG.

While Malcolm Brogdon was born in the United States, it seems as though he'd like to play for a different team on the international stage. A recent report has suggested that Malcolm Brogdon wants to join the Polish national basketball team. The news was originally reported by Lukasz Ceglinski of, and the translation was provided by HoopsHype.

Malcolm Brogdon wants to play for Poland national basketball team, and that PZKosz is making efforts to make this happen and complete the necessary formalities as soon as possible. In a word, both parties want this to happen but formalities remain.

Brogdon, which is an important piece of the puzzle, is related to Poland. His wife has Polish roots, her relatives live in the vicinity of Słupsk. Moreover, last summer, Brogdon was in Poland and even had a few friendly trainings with Paweł Leończyk, a former Polish representative, currently a player of Trefl Sopot.

Team USA basketball generally has a lot of talented players that are vying for spots on the roster during international events. Even talented players such as Trae Young get snubbed during the selection process. There's no doubt that Malcolm Brogdon will have a bigger opportunity to shine on the international stage if playing for the Polish national team. It remains to be seen if the mutual interest between the two parties will result in Malcolm Brogdon actually joining the team.

The Polish basketball roster does not feature any NBA players currently, and adding Malcolm Brogdon would certainly help them be a more competitive team. He would give them a perfect lead guard, and hopefully we hear about an agreement between Malcolm Brogdon and the team in the future.
