HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — France is hopeful that reigning NBA scoring champion Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers will choose to wear its colors for the 2024 Paris Olympics. Embiid recently became an American citizen. Embiid may choose to play internationally for the U.S. or France, but not both. It was widely presumed that he would play for France at the Paris Games, and possibly even next year’s Basketball World Cup in the Philippines.
