Angola: NBA Player Might Join Interclube

Luanda — The DR Congo basketball player, Serge Ibaka, currently holding the Spanish nationality, had reached a verbal accord to represent the Angola's senior men team of Interclube in 2006.

The information was released Sunday in Luanda by Serge Ibaka himself.

The power forward Serge Ibaka (23) was speaking during the Sprite NBA Africa Clinic Project designed to hunt for new talents.

He explained that the contact with Interclube took place in South Africa in 2006 when he was playing for his country's junior team.

The player said he had reached a verbal deal with Interclube coach Manuel Sousa "Necas"), but because of a delay in finalising the accord, he got a visa to Europe.

Serge Ibaka, 2,08 metres tall, an Oklahoma City Thunder power forward, was considered one of the best in the 2012 NBA season.
