As already reported by Eurohoops, both Tyler Dorsey and Kostas Sloukas won’t be at the 2023 FIBA World Cup. Now, it’s clear that even Nick Calathes won’t be present.

In the 18-man preliminary roster for the most anticipated International competition of the year, however, the name of Giannis Antetokounmpo is present, although his presence at the 2023 FIBA World Cup is still unclear.

Dimitris Itoudis will have Olympiacos‘ own Thomas Walkup, ready to debut with the Greek national team, experienced players like Kostas Papanikolaou and Ioannis Papapetrou, the returning Dinos Mitoglou, the young sensation Nikos Rogkavopoulos, and the revelation of the year in Italy Vasilis Charalampopoulos.

Greece is set to face the United States, Jordan, and New Zealand in Manila’s Group C, and this will be the 18-man preliminary roster for Dimitris Itoudis’ Greece ahead of the 2023 FIBA World Cup:

  • Thomas Walkup
  • Michalis Lountzis
  • Dimitris Flionis
  • Giannoulis Larentzakis
