Joël Embiid, Luc Mbah a Moute and Pascal Siakam, who are players in the North American Basketball League (NBA), are part of a list of 30 players pre-selected by the Cameroon team for Afrobasket 2017 scheduled for next September in Tunis and Dakar. None of the three participated in qualifiers but the federation apparently counts on them for the Afrobasket. If it is possible for Siakam and Moute to be present for the team, one is rather puzzled with regard to the sixers’ case.
The question, however, is whether or not the three players will be able to and / or be willing to compete in the 2017 Afrobasket, NBA players being protected by expensive insurance against injuries.
The 30 pre-selected players:
Francois Affia, Arnold Akola, Nkene Aziz, Alfred Aroga, Christian Bayang,
Simon Bileg, Felix Bogmis, Joel Embiid, Pierre Essome , Kenneth Kadji,
Brylle Kamen, Luc Mbah a Moute, Ben Mballa, Boris Mbala , Arnaud Moto,
Arsene Mouaha, Williams Narrace , Seoud Njoya Landry Nnoko, Arnaud Noah,
Hans Ntamak , Jeremy Nzeulie, Gedeon Pitard, Pascal Siakam, Ngijol Songolo,
Etienne Tametong, Jonathan Tchuisseu, Franck Tchoubaye, Ralph Temgoua, Franck Yangue
