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?”
