Turkey ready for EuroBasket with final roster revealed

ISTANBUL (Turkey) - Turkey have announced their final 12-player roster ahead of FIBA EuroBasket 2022 as Ergin Ataman's side head to Tbilisi for the Group Phase.

Cedi Osman headlines the squad and will play alongside Furkan Korkmaz at another EuroBasket, while young gun Alperen Sengun will make his tournament debut at the age of 20.

There is also a maiden EuroBasket appearance for Shane Larkin, who has taken on an important role with the national team since making his debut in the Qualifiers in 2020.

Melih Mahmutoglu and Sertac Sanli also provide valuable tournament experience for Turkey, who will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing window in the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 European Qualifiers after they lost both games last week.
