Croatia lock in final 12 for EuroBasket with Bogdanovic, Saric and Zubac

ZAGREB (Croatia) - Croatia have finalized their 12-player roster for FIBA EuroBasket 2022 with Bojan Bogdanovic, Dario Saric and Ivica Zubac leading the way.

Head coach Damir Mulaomerovic will look to lean on the experienced NBA trio as they head to Milan, Italy for Group C action alongside Greece, Estonia, Great Britain, Ukraine and the hosts.

Bogdanovic was amongst the leading scorers at FIBA EuroBasket 2017 with 22.5 points per game and is now set for a fifth consecutive appearance in the tournament, while Zubac awaits a debut. Saric first appeared in Europe's flagship event as a 19-year-old in 2013 and returned to playing action this summer after a long injury absence.

Croatia have also have some exciting young talents on the roster with emerging star Roko Prkacin alongside Karlo Matkovic, who was a second round pick in this year's NBA Draft, as they look to make a name for themselves on the big stage.

Jaleen Smith is the newcomer to the team with the naturalized guard joining up with the national team for the first time this summer and making a debut during the preparation games.
