Who is the best young player in the Euroleague? Who will receive the tournament’s “rising star” award in a few days? Eurohoops looks back in the season, chooses the predominant candidates and makes a selection.
Eligible for the award are all those who were younger than 22 years of age on the 1st of July of the year the season started, in our case anyone who hadn’t yet become 22 on 1/7/2014.
The future of the player who will eventually be selected as the ‘rising star’ of the Euroleague is bright. Six of the last seven winners (before last year’s Bogdan Bogdanovic) went on to a career in the NBA!
Let’s take a look then at who the dominant candidates are to win the award this year.
