Reebok Eurocamp Treviso: the participants

May 20th, 2008 · 2 Comments

While the list have not been published on the official website of the camp, the usually well informed sources have the names already online for a few days. Here are the names then again with a few comments from my side.

NBA Draft Early Entry Players
1) Danilo Gallinari
2) Nicolas Batum
3) Rudy Mbemba
4) Serge Ibaka
5) Joe Ingles
6) Henk Norel
7) Giorgi Shermadini
8) Jonas Jerebko
9) Luc Louves
10) Nando De Colo
11) Ronalds Zakis
12) Maxym Korniyenko
13) Maxsym Vilkhovetskyi
14) Sergey Ilin
15) Mladen Jeremic

All the main guys of the early entrance list are present on the list. Of course some of the guys will not be present because of League playoffs going on in France or Serbia. Danilo Gallinari and Giorgi Shermandini are reported to eventually only go for shooting and not participating in the game situations. It will be very interesting to see a guy like Luc Louves against this competition as he comes out of a year where he barely saw minutes with his team and only had some appearances at the end of the season.

NBA Draft Eligible (players born in 1986)
1) Anton Ponkrashov
2) Tadija Dragicevic
3) Uros Tripkovic
4) Mantas Kalnietis
5) Vladimir Golubovic
6) Rafael Hettsheimeir
7) Damjan Rudez
8) Manuchar Markoishvili
9) Nikita Kourbanov
10) Roland Hendlein
11) Andrija Stipanovic
12) Michelle Antonutti
13) George Tsintsadze
14) Ryan Read
15) Sam Van Rossom

Not that much intrigue about this group as the most talented players will probably not join Treviso because of their activity with their club team in the Serbian playoffs. This explains also the non-presence of Nikola Pekovic on this list. Anton Ponkrashov will probably be the most followed guy here but he is still active in the Russian playoffs right now with Khimky. The camp also gives a possibility to scout some less-known prospects like Roland Hendlein from Hungary or Ryan Read.

“Next Generation”
1) Nemanja Aleksandrov
2) Boban Marjanovic
3) Vladimir Dasic
4) Vitor Faverani
5) Semen Shashkov
6) Nicolo Melli
7) Alexey Shved
8) Adrien Moerman
9) Slava Kravtsov
10) Ivan Paunic
11) Donatas Motiejunas
12) Luigi Datome
13) Jakub Wojciechowski
14) Jaka Klobucar
15) Chavdor Kostov
16) Oleksandr Kolchenko
17) Marko Keselj
18) Elemden Kikanovic
19) Stefan Markovic
20) Artem Zabelin
21) Andrey Vorontsevich
22) Aboubakar Zaki
23) Vladimir Stimac
24) Maxim Krivosheev

The part of the list with the most upside but also the most question marks is like always the “Next generation”. If all of these players will really show up in Treviso, you can have an extremely good overview of the upcoming prospects in Europe. Some of them are already present on a very high quality level like Vladimir Stimac who won the MVP trophy of the Baltic League or Adrien Moerman who is the freshly named MVP of the French ProB.

We will see who will come to Treviso in the end. But the thing that is sure is that will be present this year for the first time in Treviso and give you updates and reports on most of the present prospects.

    too pity we cant see the serbian players competing against all the other talents, since all will reach the playoffs with their teams.
    Golubovic has made a big step in this season but cut his contract due to payment delay and will be present… lets see how he makes himself, since he mostly relies on his body. Dasic has stagnated over the last two seasons and is a BIG DISSAPOINTMENT. Stimac, cant imagin him beeing the mvp of the baltic leage…
