Nick Calathes isn't sure to be on the team, as he wants to play for Dallas next season, and they won't let him play if he does (Cuban and his crap again).
Looks like a lock for a medal.

Lithuania's final roster is always unpredictable. Keliza, Jasikevicius, Kalnietis, Valanciunas, Pocius, Kaukenas, Javtokas, Jankunas, and Jasaitis (probably Maciulis too if he's healthy) are locks I would venture to say.
I think questionable are only two places
PG Kalnietis, Jasikevicius
SG Kaukenas, Pocius, Seibutis-Delinininkaitis-Dulkys
SF Jasaitis, Maciulis
PF Kleiza, Jankunas, Motiejunas-Songaila
C Valanciunas, Javtokas
Most likely in final roster will go Delininkaitis and Songaila

Why do they not select Gecevicius? I think he is better than Pocius, Seibutis, and Delinininkaitis. At least, for sure he is better than Delinininkaitis and also Jasaitis.

And Songaila seemed over the hill when he was with Galatasaray. They really should hope Motiejunas plays.

Gecevicius can't defend, can't run, he's weak physically and mentally. He can only shoot and play p&r.
Motiejunas have huge ego.

Yet, he's still better for sure than players like Jasaitis and Delinininkaitis.

Motiejunas is an a-hole. He always has been. But Songaila is washed up.

I know Serbia wont play in Olympics but I didnt want to make a thread aboute Eurobasket qualification so I will write it here . Ivkovic said that he will tell the list of players that will play for NT and will look to bring some young and new players ( we are going to be first in group anyway so why not allow some players to rest ) .

Serbia does need to bring in new players. They were bad last summer.

No. Ivkovic needs to select better players to win a medal.

Paunic, Tepic, etc. It's not good enough.

same players ( who are still jung and improving ) won silver in 2009 and would have won gold or silver in 2010 if reffs didnt give the win to Turkey . Paunic plays 5 mpg so he isnt that important and Tepic is only player that doesnt play good enough for medal contender others always play much better for NT than for their clubs .

IMO Ivkovic needs to select better players. Serbia kind of surprised people those first couple years when they were young. Everyone knows about them and how to play them now.

Serbia needs some more scorers and Teodosic needs help at PG. I don't see any medal next year without them selecting some better players.
