Detroit Pistons rookie Michael Gbinije isn’t the first All-American in his family, but he could be the first Olympian.

He’s also working for a spot on the Pistons permanent roster in the fall and a spot on the Nigerian National Team at the upcoming Summer Olympics in Rio.

“My first responsibility is to the Pistons, but if it happens that would be wonderful,” he said. “Definitely looking forward to it; right now it’s not 100% if I’m going to do it or not, but I want to do it. I have to qualify and who doesn’t want to play in the Olympics?”

Restricted free-agent center Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to the Denver Nuggets, league sources told ESPN.

Agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports and Denver president of basketball operations Tim Connelly reached agreement on the deal late Sunday night, league sources said.

With the deal, Denver was able to avoid Plumlee signing a $4.6 million qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season — which would’ve allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
