Varejao, Nene, Barbosa Added To Brazil's Preliminary Roster For Olympics
Anderson Varejao, Nene, and Leondro Barbosa were included Monday on the preliminary list of players who could make Brazil's squad for the upcoming Olympics.
“I knew they would be within the list,” Brazil coach Ruben Magnano said. “With them Brazil gets stronger.”
Varejao, still recovering from a broken wrist, has competed at the last two FIBA World Championships.
"I’ve played in a lot of competitions with Brazil, but playing in the Olympics is different,” Varejao said. "I’m very motivated. I think we have a group capable of fighting for a medal in London."
