    was this Wilbekin debut?
    It wasn┤t as easy as the result says. We collapsed in the last minutes, before we played a rock solid game, while missing eight of our key players + two NBA rookies - plus the opponent has a enormous shooting day. Turkey has a great squad with an unscrupulous backcourt (Wilbekin, Korkmaz and Osman) supplemented with a frontcourt made for this kind of backcourt. They lack a bit of deepness in their roster, but I guess they missed also some players (Duverioglu, Guler, etc....?). In two, three years Turkey could play for medals in the big tournaments again.

    Edit: Wilbekin had to leave the game with an injury in the fourth quarter. Don┤t know if its something serious...

    Voigtmann for sure who plays with Baskonia in preseason.

    Benzing, Voigtmann, Saibou and Obst. The last two players are maybe no key players, but they are way stronger than Akpinar and Doreth. Grof is a solid second division player, I have no clue what he is doing in the national team. Not to forget our NBA Rookies Moe Wagner, Isaiah Hartenstein and Isaac Bonga.

    Best roster:
    PG Schr÷der/Lo/Bonga
    SG Obst/Saibou or Tadda
    SF Zipser/Benzing or Giffey
    PF Kleber/Barthel
    C Voigtmann/Theis/Pleiss

    Barthel could be replaced by Moe Wagner and Pleiss by Hartenstein.

    Actual roster:
    PG Schr÷der/Doreth/Grof
    SG Akpinar/Tadda
    SF Giffey/Jallow
    PF Kleber/Barthel
    C Thiemann/Zirbes/Seiferth

    But all teams are missing players, so no reason to cry, I just want to keep in mind we miss some talent and that our current players didn┤t make a bad job based on their abilities.

    To be fair to Hungary, they missed 4-5 best players.

    As for us, there are few new interesting things to see:

    1. Milutinov's connection with Jović/Bogdanović in pick&roll sets and his effectiveness in the post, because now he is going to have a couple of great passers around him who can set things up for him and make a well timed entry pass to the post. Having Bjelica who's become such a great weapon from the three point range will only help him in this regard by stretching the floor. Milutinov is the perfect complimentary piece for this team, his athleticism, rim protection, passing (an underrated aspect of his game) fit our needs defensively and work great with our motion offense.

    2. I was looking forward to seeing Todorović playing alongside Bogdanović, but he won't be available in this window. Big attention to this guy, a perfect back-up for Bogdan. He is not elite at anything, but does everything very well. He's got a really sweet game. Right now, with Bogdan, Teo, Jović and Nedović, he figures as the fifth guard in our rotation. Athleticism and physicality will get him minutes at SF, depending on the match-up. If he is going to be our fifth best guard, then our depth in the backcourt is for real. What makes it even better is that most of them are versatile and capable of playing multiple positions. This team in full health plus Jokić might become an epitome of positionless motion offense which is where modern basketball is heading towards.

    3. Great to see Bjelica back, that is just huge...

    4. Kalinić/Lučić combo at the forward spot. They should form an an energetic, powerful duo for 40 minutes of relentless running, rebounding, defensive intensity, transition and cutting to the basket (especially with Jokić on floor). Plus they are both able to hit open shots, post up and put the ball on the floor.
