    Datome also picked up a light injury and will be out for about 10 days. Simone Fontecchio was called up in the Italian camp.

    Flaccadori and Fontecchio were cut last week.
    Luca Vitali is the newest one, after the Cagliari tournament.
    14 players on the roster at the moment.


    I guess one of the remaining PF's (probably Baldi Rossi) will be cut and who will be the last one?

    According to Gazzetta dello sport and minutes played in the last friendlies Filippo Baldi Rossi will be in the final roster

    he's best shooter than Burns,he can spread the floor and only big man together Cervi near to 210 cm,also he has high IQ basketball and for me definitely better player than Burns

    only doubt for Messina is for his physical condition(he missed the final part of the season with Trento due to an injury)

    other cut will be Della Valle or Cinciarini

    yesterday Messina declared that he must only decide if in final roster there will be 2 playamker and 3 shooting guards or 3 playamker and 2 shooting guards

    my prediction: final cut will be della Valle and Burns

    12 for Eurobasket:

    Hackett-Filloy-Cinciarini
    Belinelli-Aradori
    Datome-Abass
    Melli-Pascolo
    Cusin-Biligha-Burns

    front court very undersize,except for Cusin, but with players that have a lot of energy like Biligha and Burns

    I think real goal for us is get the ticket for 1/8 final,not more

    Conciarini, Abass and Cusin are in the roster because they are good players or just because they are Olimpia Milano players?

    Cinciarini is a fighter,he always play well with NT,i think like 3rd point guard is the best choice for us

    Abass is only true Small forward behind Datome after injury of Gallo,then has high potential,he will play fw minutes,rebound ,energy and defense,i hope he will hit some 3 point shot

    Cusin is our best C actually,Cervi is unexpercienced player and in th last friendlies played very bad

    I Thin these 3 players are in the roster because our NT need them,not for other

    I somewhat agree but Cinciarini is a big questionmark and a big surprise (he has played few minutes on friendly games)... btw he's not in great shape this year and he's not the quickest o most skilled PG around... i think he can be decent for 3rd PG in this roster and that's all.

    Cusin is our best defensive and rebounding center... and usually plays very well at Eurobasket. Cervi is not ready at all for this level and i wonder if he'll ever be...

    Abass should thank Gallo for that punch or he would not have made the final roster... he's too inconsistent even if has some potential as 3&D player. I think Aradori will play good minutes at 3 spot when Datome is on the bench and Abass will only play garbage minutes...

    Guys, how were Datome and Melli in the friendly games? I couldn't see any of the games.
