The new addition of the Toronto Raptors forward Juancho Hernangomez assured this Thursday that the Spanish national team can do well in the upcoming EuroBasket, which will take place from September 1 to 18 in Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic, and Georgia.

Hernangomez talked to the media at the end of the team's second day of training camp in the Movistar Academy in Madrid.

"It's clear that it's a change of cycle, we know we don't have the same talent, but [Sergio] Scariolo has asked us to enjoy ourselves, and we're going to compete to the fullest," said Hernangomez.

The youngest of the Hernangomez brothers also talked about the unity of the group to achieve its goals.

"Everyone is important, the twelve [players], the staff, the physicist, the kit man, they all make a great team, and as long as the team works and wins any role is important," said the forward.

Juancho thanked the understanding of his new team, the Toronto Raptors with which he signed earlier this summer.

"They know how important it is to play for your team and your country, and they haven't had a problem," explained the player.

"I was not in any hurry, I signed, but I could not have done it and be here, nothing changed, my head is in the European Championship, in the national team" concluded Hernangomez.
