I am updating my OP, putting all final 12 men rosters. IF you know teams that announced their final 12, if would be cool if you posted them here, would help me a bit.

Latvian 12-man squad was just announced:

Dairis Bertans
Davis Bertans

KP will play. According to unofficial info, he had an MRI today, which was negative, thus allowing him to fully participate in the workouts (and games).

So what would your power rankings be like? Now that almost all rosters are known?

I think that Spain has the best squad and will take the gold medal. They have a deep roster and they are just to strong on the PF/C positions.

Then there are six teams that have equal chances to take medals
1. France(They have a good team, but France just isn't France without 3 of the main players(Gobert, Parker and Batum)
2. Slovenia( Slovenia has the best team since 2009(when they have finished 4th). It is the last tournament for Dragič and I think he will be highly motivated. He is the best PG on this championship and has a solid team around him(Randolph, Dončič, Vidmar, Prepelič, Blažič, Murič, Čančar, Rebec. I think that they can suprise anyone on a good day)
3. Serbia( Even without Teo, Jokič, Kalinič, Markovič, Bjelica,... Serbia has a good team. They alway are a contender for the medals. I think that Bogdanović and Boban will be their deadliest weapons..)
4. Lithuania (Lithuania is also a contender on every tournament. But I think that this years squad is their worst in the last few years..)
5. Greece (They will play great defence, but they just aren't the same team without giannis..)
6. Croatia (They also have a nice team but I think it just isn't enough... Šarič and Bogdanovič are great, but they just aren't deep enough...

Then there are 2 teams that could suprise us all:
1. Latvia( If they have a good shooting day, they beat anybody. If Paseckins would play, they would be realy strong)
2. Montenegro( They will be very unpredictable. With Vucevic, Dubljevič, Rice and support from Ivanovic, Popovic, Vranes,... And with Tanjevic as their coach..

1. Spain
2-4. France
2-4. Slovenia
2-4. Serbia
5-6. Croatia
5-6. Lithuania
7-9. Greece
7-9. Latvia
7-9. Montenegro

Spain have looked amazingly dominant, it's really surprising. Not because they don't have the talent to dominate, but because they've always seemed to play to the level of their competition in the group stages in previous tournaments. They would always turn it on in the knock out round, but this is the first time I've looked at them in the group stages and been properly impressed.

Wins of 39, 37, and 41. If they continue this I'm not sure anyone stands a chance.

Typical Greece of last 10 years.... beats favorite Lithuania, losses to underdog Russia and goes home without medal as always.

Shved makes the difference for Russia. Altough he went to Khimki to earn some money, he didn't lost his athleticism and passion. Big time player, but still not a big team player.
