Nate Reinking will not be on the sidelines for Great Britain’s crucial final two EuroBasket qualifiers.

Marc Steutel, along with Andreas Kapoulas and Jamie Smith, will take charge on site against Germany and France this month in Montenegro, as first revealed in The MVP Mail.

Again diverted by his NBA G-League duties with the Canton Charge – who are, in turn, confined to its bubble site in Florida – the return leg with the French on February 22 will be the sixth consecutive absence for the former GB international.

MVP understands that Reinking has been in direct phone contact with players ahead of finalising the squad for the double-header, but his assistants will be at the helm.

Following last November’s 74-59 win over the Montenegrins under Steutel, GB will likely book a trip to the Euro finals with one victory out of two with the Germans already assured of qualification as co-hosts.
