It guides us all the way back to my first post - FIBA has no power to claim that a naturalized citizen is somehow lesser than a born one - it's up to the countries and their respective governments. If someone gets Spanish citizenship he's 100% Spanish, with voting rights and everything else that comes with it. The rule you're proposing would get crushed in any civil court for being discriminative.

FIBA is already doing that. Hence the limit of one naturalized player per team.
