Latvia have selected an experienced final roster ahead of their FIBA Olympic Qualifiers but it does not include New York Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis.

Head coach Ainars Bagatskis has picked a squad filled with solid three-point shooters, consistent forwards but more importantly, experience as they bid to reach the Rio Olympics.

Latvia will play Czech Republic and Japan in their pool games in Belgrade.


Janis Strelnieks, Ingus Jakovics, Aigars Skele, Dairis Bertans, Janis Blums, Janis Timma, Janis Berzins, Ojars Silins, Mareks Mejeris, Kaspars Berzins, Martins Meiers and Anzejs Pasecnicks.
