These rankings are both a subjective list (that will create disagreements and differing opinions) and a sort of 'Euroleague guide'.
N.B. Sergio Llull was not included in the list because he's probably out for the season; Tyrese Rice was not included in the list because he's still on the market and he is not in the plans of the team for the upcoming season.
Player's role and impact in the team;
Last year numbers and injuries.
#20 NICOLÒ MELLI (PF, FENERBAHCE)
The Italian power forward is coming off the best season of his career: he set career highs in points, rebounds and blocks (in the Euroleague regular season).
With an improvement in his low post skills, he can become the best '4' in Europe.
#19 NICK CALATHES (PG, PANATHINAIKOS)
Point guard with the body of a SF, one of the best all around players in the league: he can score in many ways and he has a consistently reliable game in the post when he finds mismatches in his favor.
His free throw percentage remains a considerable weakness as it steadily below 60%, he needs to improve his long range shot too.
#18 BOJAN DUBLJEVIC (PF/C, VALENCIA)
Valencia's totem: he has a very good touch from close and mid range, in the last few years he added a respectable 3-point shot.
Txus Vidorreta expects from him both minutes at PF and as a stretch five.
#17 GUSTAVO AYON (C, REAL MADRID)
Last season he ranked 1st in the league in field goal percentage (70%) and he's in a better shape than last preseason.
He needs to find a way to improve his free throw percentages.
#16 KOSTAS SLOUKAS (PG, FENERBAHCE)
A master of the pick and roll, he knows how to utilize his teammates and how to change the pace.
He had a strong Eurobasket, where he was Greece top scorer.
#15 ANTHONY RANDOLPH (PF/C, REAL MADRID)
High quality on offense, particularly facing the basket: he drives to the basket, he shoots three pointers, he catches the lobs in pick and roll situations.
He was an important piece of Slovenia National Team that won Eurobasket.
#14 JANIS TIMMA (SF, BASKONIA)
He may be the biggest addition on Baskonia's roster. There's nothing he can't do on the court: he has the phyisical tools to finish in the low post and fight for rebounds, he creates for the others.
Last season he averaged 16ppg with an excellent 44.3% from outside the three point line.
#13 ANDREW GOUDELOCK (SG, ARMANI MILAN)
Scorer with an explosive first step, a threat from any range: he's really unstoppable if he gets his rhythm. He needs to be better in teamwork, evolve his creating ability.
The favorite to win the Alphonso Ford (Top Scorer) Trophy.
#12 TORNIKE SHENGELIA (PF, BASKONIA)
NBA body and terrific physical tools. He's very aggressive when he attacks the rim and fight for the rebound.
He needs to improve considerably his decision-making on the court.
#11 BRYANT DUNSTON (C, ANADOLU EFES)
At 31 he remains a very useful pick and roll player defensively as well as offensively, with great explosiveness and athletic qualities.
Two times winner of the Euroleague defensive player of the year award, Anadolu Efes extended his contract for two more seasons.
