Lithuania
Spain
Serbia
Greece
Slovenia
France
Croatia
Russia
Turkey
Germany
Belgium
Great Britain
Israel
FYROM
Montenegro
Italy
Latvia
Ukraine
Bosnia & Herzegovina
Georgia
Poland
Bulgaria

and two of : Portugal, Finland, Hungary

in bold the teams that could do well (if they have most players available)

Italy with their domestic talent plus Bargnani, Gallinari & Bellinelli can be a very solid team. Montenegro has lots of talented players and could beat some of the 'big' teams.

Don't like this setup. Will create many unnecessary games, extra unneeded fatigue...

FIBA idiots. IF (big if) there was need for expanding European championship it should have been done in next cycle (Eurobasket 2013).
