Default Bonner Interested In Playing For Canada

I guess now that he's marrying a Canadian, he's looking to get his Canadian status too.

Would be a nice addition to the national team and a great PR person for Basketball Canada.

And yes, he made a joking comment about getting himself a Canadian passport and playing for the national team.

I have no idea how immigration really works in this country but I’m sure someone in the upper echelons of Canada Basketball will see if the move is possible.

That’d be very cool. Too bad he couldn’t be with the team now; he could check that German basketball legend Chris Kaman in exhibition games this week.
