Georgios Papagiannis will join the Greek National Team for Eurobasket 2017 after the Sacramento Kings gave the official OK to the Hellenic Basketball Federation (EOK). The 19-year old will be invited to the first stage of training over the summer and if he makes the cut for the final 12-man roster, he will play for Greece at Eurobasket 2017.
