France have revealed their final 12-man roster for Eurobasket 2015 with Mouhammadou Jaiteh and Thomas Heurtel the last two to be cut.
The European champions will be based in Montpellier and face Russia, Poland, Finland, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Israel in Group A with the co-hosts looking to advance to the second and final rounds, which will be held in Lille.
No doubt, the squad that coach Vincent Collet has selected is a strong one, plenty of international and NBA experience, including the 2013 Eurobasket MVP Tony Parker along with Nicholas Batum, Boris Diaw and the promising Rudy Gobert.
Parker’s inclusion means that Heurtel, who had a fantastic FIBA World Cup last year, leading them to a bronze medal misses out.
