Rondae Hollis-Jefferson could see action in the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023.
The former NBA cager might suit up for Jordan as its naturalized player in the global hoops conclave set on August 25 to September 10.
No less than the Jordan Basketball Federation (JBF) disclosed the development via the social media platform Instagram Monday (Manila time).
The 28-year-old winger has already joined the Falcons in their training camp in Lithuania as part of their buildup for the World Cup, according to JBF.
The wheels are now rolling to grant Jordanian citizenship to Hollis-Jefferson to have his services officially sooner, the federation added.
Should that happen, ‘RHJ’ could find himself back in Manila, just months after steering TNT to the 2023 PBA Governors’ Cup title at Ginebra’s expense.
Jordan is pooled in Group C together with the redemption-seeking United States, European contender Greece, and New Zealand.
Group C, along with Groups A, B, and D, will all play their games in Manila. Groups C and D matches will be held at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.
Hollis-Jefferson is coming off a stint with the Atleticos de San German of the Baloncesto Superior Nacional (BSN) in Puerto Rico.
His pending addition to the Jordanian men’s team marks yet another major development for Asian teams bound for the World Cup.
Last April, FIBA Asia Cup 2022 silver medalist Lebanon announced that Omari Spellman has been added to the Cedars’ pool for the prestigious meet.
