The 7DAYS EuroCup has historically been a launching pad for the careers of great young talents and the 2022-23 edition should be no different. The list of former EuroCup Rising Stars includes the likes of Jonas Valanciunas, Bojan Dubljevic and Kristaps Porzingis, among others, and there are a great many more who graced the courts of the competition on their way to stardom. Here are some of the top young players poised to leave their mark on the EuroCup this season.
Athanasios Bazinas, Promitheas Patras
Promitheas has developed many strong players from its fantastic youth system. One of the most promising is Bazinas, a pass-first playmaker who will turn 20 in October. Despite his age, Bazinas enters his fourth EuroCup season. In his last EuroCup game last season, Bazinas tallied 11 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and a PIR of 18 against Cedevita Olimpija Ljubljana. That is a good sign of what Bazinas has to offer Promitheas in the coming years.
