Real Madrid duo Sergio Llull and Rudy Fernandez have no plans to stop after winning the EuroLeague title.

Jorge Garbajosa, president of the Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB), confirmed receiving commitments from both veterans for the FIBA Basketball World Cup.

"I chatted with Alberto Herreros, Rudy, Chacho, and Sergio Llull. I am delighted for them. I see numerous similarities with our EuroBasket success. They appeared to be out of the EuroLeague two weeks ago after falling behind 0-2," Garbajosa started.

"The most incredible thing is that when I called them, Llull and Rudy were the first to say, "See you this summer." They have an incredible level of commitment," Garbajosa added.

Spain will compete in Group G of the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Jakarta, Indonesia, against Iran, Cote D'Ivoire, and Brazil.

The Basketball World Cup will be held in the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia from August 25th to September 10th, with the three countries hosting for the first time.
