MIES, October 6, 2017 - National federations and players representatives from Germany, Greece, Italy, Russia, Spain and Turkey on Thursday met with FIBA officials at the House of Basketball to discuss the current situation in European basketball as well as FIBA's new calendar that comes into effect next month.

The players' representatives were grateful to the International Basketball Federation for the invitation. They expressed their disappointment at not being involved in the process earlier and failing to be heard out by both FIBA and Euroleague Commercial Assets (ECA) on this matter.

They highlighted the enduring importance of the national team to grow the sport of basketball and confirmed that representing their country is a player's single biggest honor.

Participants agreed to repeat such meetings regularly to discuss European basketball matters.
