Coach Oded Katash turned the page in the Israeli national team. The trio of Ohayon, Halperin and Pnini were not called and NBAer Omri Casspi will always be missing.

However, the story comes from the fact that four EuroLeague players are also called. Yovel Zoosman, Jake Cohen, Karam Mashour and Itay Segev who are all playing for Maccabi Tel Aviv are the players who will have to chose between their club and the national team.

Τhe rest of the players called are the following: Shawn Dawson, Tom Maayan, Gal Mekel, Amit Simhon, Ben Altit, Juakin Shuchman, Tamir Blatt, Joe Alexander, Bar Timor, Richard Howell, Lior Eliyahu, Tomer Ginat, Rafi Menco, Oz Blayzer, Daniel Kuperberg, Netanel Artzi, Idan Zalmanson, Yiftah Ziv, Igor Nesterenko, Elishay Kadir.

A similar situation exists already in France and Montenegro and other national teams are also expected to call EuroLeague players, despite the scheduling conflict between the FIBA World Cup qualifying games and the EuroLeague season.
