Junior walk-on Todd Zafirovski has been extended an invitation to try out for the Macedonian national basketball team.
The Macedonian International News Agency (MINA) reported earlier today that Zafirovski had already been named to the team, but Duke sports information denies that the 6-foot-9, 240-pound forward has already secured a roster spot.
"Todd has shown interest to play for Macedonia, so in the upcoming period we'll be starting the procedure for obtaining Macedonian citizenship," Daniel Dimevski, the head of the Macedonian Basketball Federation, told MINA.
Zafirovski has played a total of nine minutes this season over four games, recording two points, two rebounds and one block, and he has not seen court action since Jan. 19 against Wake Forest.
Macedonia has risen to 33rd in FIBA's world rankings after an upset-filled run to the semifinals of EuroBasket 2011.
