Greek-American Tyler Dorsey Wants to Play for Greek Olympic Hoop Team

December 21, 2019

He hasn’t been able to make his mark for Greece’s national basketball team despite a stellar college career at Oregon, but Greek-American Tyler Dorsey, now playing for Maccabi Tel Aviv, said he hopes to earn a spot if the team qualifies for the 2020 Olympics.

After two years in the NBA, Dorsey moved to Europe and joined the Israeli team, which plays in the European league despite not being in Europe and said the pace of play is slower than the NBA.

Talking to Eurohoops, he said he was unhappy that being a free agent this year kept him off the Greek team that got smeared in the World tournament with NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo playing way below his level.

“I wanted to have a team before I did anything. Unfortunately, it was bad timing and I didn’t have a team. I needed to be in Greece but I was still pursuing, trying to be in the NBA. If a team needed to come see me, talk to me, I wanted to be available.” He wants to show his stuff at the Olympics, if Greece gets there.
