Basket News | Panathinaikos’ new addition to Athens, Paris Lee, has received a Cameroonian passport, as reported by Gazzetta.gr.
Lee will represent the African country in the upcoming FIBA World Cup Qualifiers matches against Congo and Egypt, via the report.
The 27-year-old playmaker is expected to miss a few days of preparation for Panathinaikos for a new season.
Lee was born in Maywood, Illinois, but never played for the US national teams in any age category.
He last competed for AS Monaco who Lee made his EuroLeague debut with. In Europe’s top event, Lee averaged 7.2 points, 1.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 7.0 PIR over 36 games.
Monaco made the playoffs of the competition, where they were eliminated by Olympiacos Piraeus. They were also the French LNB runners-up, losing 2-3 to LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne in the final series.
The Cameroon national team recently received a blow when NBA star Joel Embiid was granted French citizenship and is reportedly interested in playing for the Blues.
