A Dane may soon be on contract in the strongest North American basketball league, the NBA.
Gabriel ‘Iffe’ Lundberg has signed a contract with the Phoenix Suns for the rest of the season. TV2 Sport and basketnews.com experience this.
In that case, he switches to the current best team in the entire league, as the Phoenix Suns with 53 wins in 67 games so far is by far the best team in the NBA this season.
If 27-year-old Gabriel Lundberg ends up switching to the NBA, the guard will probably also be the first Dane to get playing time in the world’s probably strongest basketball league.
Thus, he appears to be unemployed only briefly. On Friday, he broke his contract with CSKA Moscow following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Two weeks earlier, he had traveled home to Denmark as a result of the invasion.
– I have had to make a very difficult decision, which is based on my family’s safety, the Copenhagener said to his now former club’s website in connection with the breach of contract.
