Fenerbahce will have most players competing at EuroBasket

EuroLeague

While most EuroLeague clubs will be biting their fingernails to the point of rawness this summer, the champions Fenerbahce will be sweating the most as nine of their players will be competing at Eurobasket.

The Turkish giants, who beat Olympiacos in May’s finale at the Sinan Erdem Dome have nine players, representing four countries, Turkey, Greece, Italy and Serbia competing at this summer’s international event, as compiled by Eurohoops.

CSKA Moscow and Olympiacos are close behind with eight stars as Mikhail Kulagin, Vitaly Fridzon, Nikita Kurbanov, Andrey Vorontsevich, Semen Antonov, Leo Westermann, Nando De Colo and Sergio Rodriguez all set to be Eurobasket for CSKA.

Vangelis Mantzaris, Kostas Papanikolaou, Ioannis Papapetrou, George Printezis, Dimitris Agravanis, Janis Strelnieks and Kim Tillie will be on international duty and will head to Piraeus shortly afterwards to start pre-season.
