Great Britain announce EuroBasket roster

Great Britain head coach Nate Reinking has named his final EuroBasket roster ahead of their opening game against Ukraine in Milan.

Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye makes his return to the 12-man team for the first time since July in place of the now unavailable Teddy Okereafor.

Mo Soluade also misses due to injury.

Veteran Dan Clark becomes the only player to have been selected for all five of Great Britain’s EuroBasket appearances (2009, 2011, 2013, 2017, 2022). Clark is also on course to become the Men’s team’s all-time record cap holder as he will break Eric Boateng’s long-standing record of 116 appearances for the team against Greece on September 5.

Ben Mockford, Luke Nelson, Gabe Olaseni and Myles Hesson will all be entering their second EuroBaskets with GB, whereas Devon van Oostrum makes his first appearance since 2013 and his third overall.

Despite a lack of match practice and reportedly having only had one training session in Milan, having been the last team to arrive on Wednesday, they will fancy their chances in their EuroBasket opener against Ukraine.

From there, GB will play Croatia, Greece, Estonia and hosts Italy.
