Why wouldn't a player want to play for his country? I understand that the Spurs are signing his paycheck, but he should still suit up for his native team.

Imagine it's in his contract dis-allowing him from doing so.Most contracts have clauses in them that does not allow any form of contact sport to be played away from the team.
