XXX XXXSenior Writer IApril 2, 2008

Chicago Bull stars Luol Deng and Ben Gordon were named to the 33-man squad for Great Britain's European Championship qualifying matches.

Gordon, who represented USA in the Pan American Games in 2003, was born in London and is therefore eligible to play for Great Britain. However, he remains undecided on playing in the qualifying games against Israel, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and the Czech Republic in September.

The finals are in Poland next year.

Gordon is scheduled to hold talks with officials this coming month.
