Italian forward Danilo Gallinari will help Italian national team in the PreOlympic Tournament.
"It is going to be a tournament tougher than Eurobasket. We still don’t know how the National Teams will be divided into the three tournaments. It is going to be very difficult. The scandal is that just 12 countries play at the Olympic Games. Two spots for Europe are not enough. During FIBA Basketballa Word Cup in Spain in the quarterfinals there were six teams from Europe. Rules must be changed. Eurobasket is the strongest continental tournament all over the world so it would be more fair to award more European teams" said Gallinari.
