Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine:

Fourth NIJT ticket up for grabs this weekend in Belgrade

The fourth and final Nike International Junior Tournament (NIJT) qualifier tips off this weekend in Belgrade, where the last team will book their automatic spot for the NIJT Finals at the Euroleague Final Four in May.

Already through to the May 15-18 tournament in Milan are: Cajasol Seville, who won the Citta di Roma tourney shortly after Christmas; Real Madrid, winners of the Ciutat de L’Hospitalet event at the beginning of the new year; and Zalgiris Kaunas, who captured the crown in Kaunas in early February.

There will be four more teams added to the eight-team field with Euroleague to hand out four wild cards.

Just like in the build-up to the Kaunas event, Eye on the Future reached out to the eight clubs playing in Belgrade to find out which youngsters they think are the players to watch. And here’s what to watch this weekend.

The leader from Cedevita Zagreb will be Lovro Mazalin. The 16-year-old swingman could soon become the latest Croatian youngster to be known by just his first name alongside Bojan (Bogdanovic), Dario (Saric) and Mario (Hezonja).

Mazalin already has experience with the Croatian youth national team ranks, playing a big role in Croatia finishing second at the 2013 U18 European Championship. He later starred for Croatia's U16 team, though they ended the tournament in sixth place and failed to qualify for the 2014 FIBA U17 World Championship.


NIJT Belgrade: Day 1 Recap


Lovro can score at will - he went for 44 points against Turkey at the U16 tournament - but he also gets teammates involved, rebounds well and plays solid defense while possessing a good understanding of the game. The left-handed point forward is widely considered one of the top players of the 1997 class.

Right near the top of the 1998 class is 15-year-old Milos Glisic with Partizan NIS Belgrade. The center was born in Banja Luka, Bosnia, but helped Serbia to a third-place finish at the U16 European Championship in 2012 and then took a step up on the podium last summer with a second-place showing at the 2013 U16 Euros, qualifying for the U17 Worlds this summer.

Glisic, who won't turn 16 until April, will actually be playing at his second NIJT tournament. He still has room to grow and fill out his body, which is a bit lanky and lacks elite athleticism.

For his age, Glisic possesses a great feel for the game and gets excellent positions. His mechanics are solid and he will need to improve his ball-handling and footwork if he wants to play the wing.

But he is still so young.

Lovro Mazalin erupts after flagrant foul ! Another NIJT, another youngster sensation from Croatia. 16-year-old Lovro Mazalin, who has been already starter for Croatia at last summer’s European Championship U16, has caught scouts’ eye with rare combination of skill set and talent wise. In this photograph from TP Portal presented by #eBAStatsGroup #BasketballStatistics Analysis .

The French academy INSEP is known for producing top level talent and the latest from the ever-growing line of emerging stars is Stephane Gombauld. The forward played at the U16 European Championship the last two summers, helping France last summer qualify for the 2014 FIBA U17 World Championship.

Gombauld will also be playing his second NIJT. It's still unclear what position the 16-year-old will play. He has good instincts on the offensive glass and possesses a good first step. His ball-handling is not solid enough yet to play on the wing and his body still could use some strength.

Gombauld is still young and raw, but he has long arms which makes him an ever-present threat on defense.

The player to watch for Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade is Vojislav Stojanovic, who played for Serbia at the 2013 U16 European Championship and helped them reach the Final which they lost to Spain but they still managed to book a spot in the U17 Worlds.


NIJT Belgrade: Day 2 Recap


The shooting guard is ultra aggressive and plays with a high level of intensity. The 16-year-old has good size for his position, making him a tremendous rebounder from the backcourt. His ball-handling is good enough to move over to the point for stretches. His shooting lacks consistency while his size, length and strength allows him to make plays on defense.

Zemun's Slobodan Jovanovic is another player from Serbia's bronze and silver winning U16 teams from the 2012 and 2013 U16 European Championships. The shooting guard is a strong all-around player who shoots well and will not make mistakes with the ball in his hands. His technique is fantastic but he could use some more strength.

Radovan Djokovic from Mega Vizura Belgrade is a 2.00m point guard who is very creative and has good court vision. His three-point shooting is solid and he is very dangerous when penetrating to the basket. Djokovic has quick hands on defense and was named the MVP of the Serbian U17 championship last season.


NIJT Belgrade Final Highlights: Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade-INSEP Paris


One of the players to watch from Buducnost VOLI Podgorica is Milos Popovic. The center was just 15 years old last summer playing at the U16 European Championship for Montenegro. Once the team was into the relegation round, Popovic was given more playing time and he responded with 19.2 points 9.0 rebounds, 2.4 steals and 1.2 assists in the final five games, including 34 points, 12 rebounds and 3 steals in the last game against Sweden. Popovic is extremely effective in the post but also has range out to the three-point line. He also draws a lot of fouls in the low post.

The roster for Canarias Basketball Academy looks like a United Nations team and one of the leaders will be Nobert Janicek of the Slovak Republic. The center is not especially athletic or physically impressive but he is extremely effective close to the basket. He can go with either hand around the rim, uses his body well on offense and positioning for rebounds. He has a face-up game and even a bit of range on his jumper.


It's quite likely that a number of these players - and more from the tournament - will be in Dubai this summer at the 2014 FIBA U17 World Championship...

Spanish teams take first two spots in
Nike International Junior Tournament finals

One quarter of the field is set for the Nike International Junior Tournament finals at the Euroleague Final Four in Milan as Spanish sides Cajasol Seville and Real Madrid won their respective qualifying tournaments.

Belarus big man Maxim Salash collected 20 points, 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks to lead Cajasol to a 67-53 victory over Stellazzurra BA Rome in the final of the Citta di Roma Tournament shortly after Christmas. The 17-year-old Salash, who is spending his second season with Cajasol, was named MVP of the tournament after averaging 19.8 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.3 steals.

The 2.06m power forward/center showed a deadly inside-outside game, hitting 63% from inside the arc in the final three games (after going 1-of-8 in the opener) while knocking down 6-of-11 (55%) of his three-pointers.

Joining Salash on the All-Tournament Team were Stellazzurra point guard Federico Mussini (19.3 points per game, 3.3 rebounds per game, 2.5 steals per game) and power forward Andrea La Torre (11.8ppg, 5.5rpg, 2.5spg), along with Armani Junior Milano guard Alberto Cacace (14.0ppg, 3.5rpg, 2.0spg) and forward Richard Freudenberg of Bayern Munich.

Freudenberg is someone who many people will hear about in the future. He is just 15 years old and is still coming to grips with his still-growing body. But he scored 12 and 15 points in Bayern's first two games before being held to five and seven in the last two for an average of 9.8 points. Freundenberg shot just 30 percent from the field in the tournament while grabbing 2.3 rebounds in 23 minutes a game.

One name missing from the All-Tournament Team was Edin Atic from sixth-placed Spars Sarajevo, as the 16-year-old averaged 21.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, 4.0 steals, 1.8 assists and 1.3 blocks.

The Rome tournament was lacking big-name talent in general, especially with Marko Arapovic not playing for Cibona Zagreb despite being listed on the tournament roster.

Real Madrid's junior team followed the lead of the Euroleague powers in going undefeated to take the title with a 62-56 win over previously undefeated Unicaja Malaga in the final. Jonathan Barreiro scored 20 points and 16-year-old Romanian center Emanuel Cate added 15 points and nine rebounds in the final.

The second NIJT qualifying tournament - Torneig de Basquet Junior "Ciutat de L'Hospitalet" - in the Barcelona suburb of L'Hospitalet meanwhile had plenty of talent on display last weekend.

Real Madrid's junior team followed the lead of the Euroleague powers in going undefeated to take the title with a 62-56 win over previously undefeated Unicaja Malaga in the final. Jonathan Barreiro scored 20 points and 16-year-old Romanian center Emanuel Cate added 15 points and nine rebounds in the final.

Real had a balanced team with Barreiro's 12.4 ppg leading the way as nine players averaged at least six points during the tournament. Madrid's representative on the All-Tournament Team was Republic of Congo big man Jonathan Kasibabu, who went scoreless with six rebounds in the final but averaged 6.6 points and 10.4 rebounds. His top two showings were 11 and 20 vs Fenerbahce and 8 and 16 against Joventut Badalona.


Belarus big man Maxim Salash collected 20 points, 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks to lead Cajasol to a 67-53 victory over Stellazzurra BA Rome in the final of the Citta di Roma Tournament shortly after Christmas.

Malaga's Fernando Alonso (16.0ppg, 3.2apg, 2.8rpg, 2.0spg) also made the All-Tournament Team along with Andreas Obst from Brose Baskets Bamberg (22.5ppg, 5.5rpg), Union Olimpija Ljubljana's Vasilije Vucetic (11.4ppg, 7.2rpg) and Barcelona's Marc Garcia, who was named the MVP of the tournament after averaging 21.0 points, 8.8 rebounds, 4.0 assits and 1.8 steals.

One of the real highlights of the tournament was the shoot-out between Garcia and Obst in group play as Garcia nailed seven three-pointers in scoring 40 points to go along with seven rebounds, three assists and two steals while Obst knocked down six triples in hitting for 31 points with seven rebounds and two steals in Barcelona’s 86-82 thrilling win.

Bamberg had another strong performer in Leon Kratzer (15.3ppg, 10.8rpg) while Swedish senior international Ludde Hakanson was superb for Barcelona (13.8ppg, 2.8apg, 2.3rpg) and Fenerbahce's Berk Ugurlu lived up to his billing (18.0ppg, 5.0apg, 4.5rpg, 1.8spg).

The third qualifying tournament will take place in Kaunas from February 7-9 with the fourth and final qualifier planned for February 21-23 in Belgrade.


The four winners of those tournaments will be joined by four wild card teams in the eight-team NIJT finals at the Euroleague Final Four in Milan from May 15-18.

Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine:

Men's youth hoops from Antetokounmpo to Zhou

Okay, the name of this column is Eye on the Future. But this week it's time to look back a bit.

We've moved deep into December and are just about ready to flip the calendar.

So, with that, here is a rundown of some of the top men's youth highlights over the course of the 2013 calendar year.

A as in Amedeo Della Valle
The wing man was named MVP of the U20 European Championship after leading Italy back from a big deficit to beat Latvia 67-60 in the Final and clinch their first-ever U20 men’s crown.

B as in Bhamara
India may have finished 11th at the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship but they gave some playing time to their 2.18m giant Satnam Singh Bhamara. The 17-year-old was actually playing in his second tournament for India's senior national team and he averaged 4.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in nine minutes per game over six contests.

C as in Czech Republic
The world gathered in the Czech capital Prague for the FIBA U19 World Championship where the USA went undefeated 9-0 in collecting their first title since 2009 and their fifth in 11 tournaments. Aaron Gordon was named MVP and was joined on the All-Tournament Team by USA teammate Jahlil Okafor, Australia's Dante Exum, Dario Saric of Croatia and Vasilje Micic of Serbia.

D as in Deck
Argentina power forward Gabriel Deck also played at the U19 Worlds but was slowed by injuries as the South Americans slumped to 12th place. But he came back later in the summer in strong fashion and won the FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championship.

E as in Exum
Dante Exum, as mentioned earlier, was named to the FIBA U19 World Championship All-Tournament Team in leading Australia to fourth place. He had not even turned 18 but soared up NBA Draft boards as he averaged 18.2 points as well as 3.8 assists and 3.6 rebounds. He also played a big role in Team World winning the Nike Hoop Summit.

F as in Fu
Fu Hao collected 22 points, 18 rebounds and four assists in leading China to an 85-78 win over Philippines to capture their third straight gold medal at the FIBA Asia U16 level.

G as in Giannis
What a 2013 for Giannis Antetokounmpo! The 19-year-old Nigerian-Greek guard went through the ultimate hype machine in going from playing in the obscure second division in Greece to being picked number 15 overall by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2013 NBA Draft.

H as in Hakanson
Ludde Hakanson didn't have that bad of a 2013 either. The Swedish guard helped Barcelona to the final of the Nike International Junior Tournament (NIJT) at the Euroleague Final Four in London in May. He then played at the U18 European Championship Division B, putting up big numbers. And then Hakanson moved to the Swedish senior national team and actually started games at EuroBasket 2013 while averaging 4.0 ppg and 1.0 apg. Oh, he did all that as 17-year-old!

I as in Ivory Coast
Cote d'Ivoire may have finished 15th at the U19 Worlds but they collected their first win in tournament history by knocking off Senegal 53-51. Dalen Traore led the way with 12.7 points and 10.5 rebounds.

J as in Joventut
Joventut Badalona used a balanced attack to knock off bitter city rivals Barcelona in the Final of the Nike International Junior Tournament at the Euroleague Final Four 82-59 to collect their first NIJT title in club history.

K as in Kenan
In the fashion of Brazilian footballers, Kenan Sipahi has taken to wearing just his first name on his jersey for Fenerbahce. The young Turkish star definitely has built up a bit of a CV this year, first leading Turkey to their first-ever U18 European Championship title and winning MVP honors. He then moved to Turkish powerhouse Fenerbahce and started games for the legendary coach Zeljko Obradovic.

L as in Louisville
Louisville collected their third NCAA title in school history by knocking off Michigan 82-76 in a classic NCAA Tournament final. Luke Hancock nailed all five of his three-pointers - including four in a row - to score 20 points and give the Cardinals their first crown since 1986.

M as in Micic
As previously mentioned, Vasilje Micic was named to the U19 Worlds All-Tournament Team for leading Serbia to second place. Micic showed poise and presence beyond his years in handling the frantic American defense - though his team didn't have enough firepower to overcome Team USA.

Please, Refresh this Page Once to Load all the Previews, Photographs or the Videos !




The point guard displayed that same poise and presence at EuroBasket 2013 for Serbia, averaging 4.4 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists in his senior team debut as a 19-year-old.

As of now, Karl Towns Jr is the only 2014 commitment but there is no need to worry. The roster will be filled and Towns will have tons of talented teammates. One of those that would fit in the frontcourt nicely with him would be Chicago big man Cliff Alexander.  Alexander has been on John Calipari’s radar for a while and he saws that he could see him self playing with Karl Towns jr and discussed his recruitment a bit.

N as in Nike Hoop Summit
Team World captured their second straight win at the Nike Hoop Summit as France's Livio Jean-Charles collected 27 points and 13 rebounds in a 112-98 win over Team USA. Dennis Schroder of Germany added 18 points and six assists as the true break-out figure of the competition.

O as in Olympiacos
Sure, the Greek powers won their second straight Euroleague title by knocking off Real Madrid in the Final. But Olympiacos also took a big step toward securing supremacy in Greece by locking up 19-year-old Ioannis Papapetrou and 18-year-old Dimitrios Agravanis to five-year contracts.

P as in Peno
The Serbian guard Stefan Peno was named the MVP of the U16 European Championship in helping Serbia to the Final, where they lost to Spain.

Q as in Qi
Qi Zhou lived up to his star status as he helped China to their best-ever finish at a FIBA U19 World Championship by taking seventh place. Qi collected 9.9 points, 7.8 rebounds, a tournament-high 4.8 blocsk and 1.1 assists - as a 17-year-old.

R as in Reuben
New Zealand's youngster Reuben Te Rangi has done a solid job in his move to the professional ranks for the New Zealand Breakers in the Australian NBL. Through his first 13 games, he averaged 4.5 points and 1.7 rebounds in nearly 11 minutes a game as a 19-year-old. His top highlight was certainly his 22-point showing against Adelaide 36ers in which he nailed four three-pointers in a row.

S as in Saric
Dario Saric had an eventful 2013. The Croatian first put his name into the 2013 NBA Draft and then pulled it out. He then helped Cibona to the Croatian league title. In July he was named to the All-Tournament Team at the FIBA U19 World Championship as he finished second in scoring, rebounds and assists. After that, he moved to the Croatian senior national team and showed he belonged in playing a solid role as Croatia reached the Semi-Finals at EuroBasket in Slovenia.

T as in Towns
Karl Towns Jr will gladly look back on 2013. The 17-year-old showed off his skills to the scouting basketball community at the Nike Hoops Summit, helping Team World to the win with seven points, four rebounds, four assists and two assists. In the summer, he collected 4.0 points and 1.8 rebounds in helping the Dominican Republic to the Semi-Finals of the FIBA Americas Championship and book a spot at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

U as in USA
The United States youth national teams had a pretty impressive summer. Combining the men's and women's youth sides, Team USA collected five of six possible titles. They won the U19 Worlds Men and Women and both FIBA Americas U16 tournaments, while the women won the FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championship. The men's 3x3 team was bounced in the Round of 16.

V as in Van Oostrum
Devon Van Oostrum had an up-and-down summer in 2013. He was clearly the leader for Great Britain's U20 team, which secured their first-ever spot in the U20 European Championship Division A by reaching the Division B Final, where they lost to Poland. Van Oostrum made the All-Tournament team with 26.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.4 steals. The 20-year-old was a bit less successful at EuroBasket 2013, where he averaged 7.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists as Great Britain failed to reach the second round in Slovenia.

W - as in Wiggins
Andrew Wiggins finally made his decision on where he would spend his likely only season in college by going to the University of Kansas. The 18-year-old Canadian superstar once again was a force for Team World at the Nike Hoop Summit but he did not play for Canada at all this summer, deciding against playing for the senior team at the FIBA Americas Championship and a spot at the U19 World Championship.

X - as in XII
That is the Roman numeral for 12, which was the record number of foreign-born players selected in the first round of the 2013 NBA Draft, surpassing the 10 selected in the 2011 draft. There were two Canadians picked in the lottery - number one Anthony Bennett and number 13 Kelly Olynyk. There were seven more foreign-born players picked in the second round for a total of 19 of 60 picks.

Y as in Yusta
Santiago Yusta was one of the leaders as Spain collected the U16 European Championship and qualified for the 2014 FIBA U17 World Championship. Yusta collected 13.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.1 steals and 2.0 assists for the title-winners.

Z as in Zhelin
China may have crashed out of the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship in the Quarter-Finals, but it was not the fault of 19-year-old Wang Zhelin. The big man prospect collected 15.7 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals for the senior team after deciding to pass up the U19 Worlds. Zhelin has since showed the FIBA Asia performance was not a fluke, dominating in the Chinese CBA. In his first 14 games, he averaged 22.9 points, 10.9 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 1.1 blocks, including six games of at least 20 points and 10 rebounds.


This was a rundown of some of the top men's youth highlights over the course of the 2013

Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine:

FIBA Europe picking its
2013 Young Men's Player of the Year... Dario Saric ?

It's slowly coming to the end of the year which means awards time. And FIBA Europe has released its list of 12 candidates for the 2013 Young Men's Player of the Year. So Eye on the Future would like to help those considering filling out a ballot.

The winner of the past two Young Men's Player of the Year awards was Lithuania's Jonas Valanciunas. And the 2013 winner is a pretty clear-cut decision.

First off, the list of names (alphabetically by first name as FIBA Europe has listed them):

Alejandro Abrines (Spain and Barcelona)
Amedeo Della Valle (Italy and Ohio State)
Anzejs Pasecniks (Latvia and VEF Riga)
Dario Saric (Croatia and Cibona Zagreb)
Devon Van Oostrum (Great Britain and Laboral Kutxa)
Domantas Sabonis (Lithuania and Unicaja Malaga)
Giannis Antetokounmpo (Greece and Milwaukee Bucks)
Kenan Sipahi (Turkey and Fenerbahce)
Ludvig Hakanson (Sweden and Barcelona)
Mateusz Ponitka (Poland and Telenet Ostende)
Rasmus Larsen (Denmark and La Bruixa d’Or)
Vasilje Micic (Serbia and Mega Vizura)

The winner of the past two Young Men's Player of the Year awards was Lithuania's Jonas Valanciunas. And the 2013 winner is a pretty clear-cut decision.

So, let’s go through them.

Della Valle may have led Italy to the U20 European Championship crown but he did next to nothing for Ohio State. The same could be said about Van Oostrum, winning promotion from U20 Division B but not getting the playing time in the Liga Endesa. And Pasecniks was solid at the U18 Euros but didn't have enough production at the club level to merit a top-three vote.

Larsen's presence on the list is surprising considering he didn't play for Denmark in the summer and only at the beginning of the 2013-14 season did he make inroads into the Liga Endesa team. Another surprise is Antetokounmpo being included. He played last season in the Greek second division and was little more than solid at the U20 European Championship before getting picked by the Bucks - an amazing display of the impact of hype.

Ponitka will probably not get many votes though he helped Poland get back to Division A at the U20 level after playing a key role for Polish Euroleague side Asseco Prokom. He has since moved to Belgian club Ostende and picked up right where he left off and continues to excel.

Those who know Eye on the Future know that Abrines is a personal cheeseball. But he did not play at the U20 Euros and has failed to take the step to real star status at Barcelona - not that it’s easy and that he’s not producing. But not at a Player of the Year level.

Now it starts getting tough.

Let's start with the guy who will probably get fewer votes than he deserves. But Hakanson deserves some serious recognition. He reached the final of the Nike International Junior Tournament with Barcelona at the Euroleague Final Four in London. 'Ludde' then was named to the All-Tournament Team of the U18 European Championship Division B with nearly 18 points, nearly five rebounds, more than four assists and two steals. Hakanson finished off his summer by starting games for Sweden at EuroBasket 2013 as a 17-year-old.

Sabonis will get plenty of votes after finishing fifth at the U18 Euros with Lithuania, averaging 14 points and 11.4 rebounds and shooting 55 percent from the field. The son of Lithuanian legend Arvydas also has gotten minutes with Euroleague team Unicaja Malaga.

So, we're down to the top three.

Finishing third will be Micic, who earned a space on the All-Tournament Team for silver medalists Serbia at the 2013 FIBA U19 World Championship. He then made the Serbian senior national team for EuroBasket and displayed a maturity and presence that showed he was not overmatched and belonged on the biggest stage.

Second place on Eye on the Future's ballot will go to Sipahi. He finished the 2012-13 season playing his second full season with the senior side of Tofas Bursa, appearing during the campaign in the EuroChallenge while averaging 6.9 points and 2.8 rebounds in the Turkish TBL as a 17-year-old. He then won MVP honors for leading Turkey to the U18 European Championship crown - the country's first at that level. And since then he moved to Euroleague powers Fenerbahce and started games for legendary coach Zeljko Obradovic.

The 2013 Young Men's Player of the Year will be Dario Saric. The Croatian bounced back from a contractual dispute and ended the 2012-13 season by guiding Cibona to the Croatian league title. He moved to the U19 national team and finished second in points (20.3), rebounds (11.2) and assists (4.9) at the 2013 FIBA U19 World Championship. His summer continued by showing he’s ready for the senior level in helping Croatia to the semi-finals of EuroBasket 2013 with 5.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, 0.9 assists and a team-high 0.7 blocks.


Congrats Dario - another award for you, one of many, many more to come in the future.

Richter's move from Bamberg to Frankfurt
continues trend for both teams

It wasn't the biggest move as far as basketball signings go. But Johannes Richter going from Brose Baskets Bamberg to Fraport Skyliners Frankfurt signifies two continuing shifts in German basketball.

First off, the four-time reigning champs Bamberg lost a talented German power forward who turns 20 in December.

That is a tough loss in the German Beko BBL as Germans in general are extremely valuable with the existing 6+6 foreigners rule requiring six

Germans on the 12-man game roster.

It's also tough for Bamberg to see Richter leave as the club has failed to produce a lot of young German talent. Looking back at Germany's U16 and U18 national teams since 2009, Bamberg hasn't been really well represented. At the U16 level, names like Tobias Schönhammer (2009), Dino Dizdarevic (2011), Terry Thomas (2011) and Andreas Obst (2012) don't exactly jump off the screen though some consider this summer's U16 talent Leon Kratzer someone to watch.

At the U18 level, Bamberg's current 21-year-old back-up center Philipp Neumann was on the 2009 and 2010 teams. But Daniel Leithner was on the 2009 team while David Taylor and the currently-rostered Johannes Thiemann were on the 2012 German U18 squad, which had the talent to contend for a medal but crashed out of the first round and ended up being relegated to Division B. Taylor left the Bamberg system after just one season to attend college in the United States. This past summer, Robert Zinn played a decent role for the U18 team but is not considered a great talent.

Richter played at the 2010 FIBA U17 World Championship as well as the 2011 U18 Euros before moving to the U20s the past two summers. He also helped Bamberg farm team TSV Troster Breitengusbach to the 2012 U19 NBBL league title with 21 points, seven rebounds and two assists in the final.

In addition, Bamberg's professional development team Breitengusbach was relegated last season from the third division ProB to the amateur Regionalliga. Luckily for the club, Bamberg's affiliated Regionalliga team Body Street Baunach earned promotion to the ProB and Bamberg were able to more or less just switch personnel.

Bamberg also lost out late last season on bringing in young German talent Paul Zipser, who instead decided to sign a four-year deal with Bayern Munich.

Fittingly enough, it was a four-year deal that Richter signed with the Skyliners. The Neustadt native is now in Frankfurt, where he secured a university spot to study medicine. In theory, Richter could also have stayed in Bamberg and studied medicine in nearby Erlangen.

So, what does this move mean for the Skyliners?

It's another step in Frankfurt's clear movement to become more German and build a strong base on young German players. With respected coach Gordie Herbert back at the helm in Frankfurt - he helped the Skyliners to the 2004 league title and reached the finals in 2010 - the club has a great teacher to guide the talented kids.

Danilo Barthel, who just turned 22 last week, took a big step last season and is continuing that already this season, just like 22-year-old Konstantin Klein. The 1992-born Johannes Voigtmann is already drawing attention from NBA scouts and fellow 21-year-old Kevin Bright has put his name on the radar as well with an impressive six three-pointer showing against Ludwigsburg as just the latest fine showing this season.

The 19-year-old Max Merz has already earned minutes in BBL games this season as have the pair of 21-year-olds Tim Oldenburg and Jan Novak as well as 18-year-old Stefan Ilzhofer, the latter another talent who arrived at Frankfurt this off-season from Ludwigsburg.

With the success that the Skyliners are having with young German players, more and more young Germans will likely be heading to Frankfurt knowing they have a clearer path to playing time.


In the meantime, Bamberg will continue to challenge for BBL titles but may have to fight harder in the future for talented young German players.
