Besides him, the council was attended by Zeljko Obradovic, head coach of Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul; Luigi Lamonica, veteran Euroleague Basketball referee; Paulius Motiejunas, President of Zalgiris Kaunas; Jan Pommer, Managing Director of German Racing; and Yanni Andreopoulos, Commercial Director of Formula E. Aito Garcia Reneses, head coach of ALBA Berlin, and Paul Gils, VP EMEA of New Era, were unable to attend.

The meeting addressed a few different topics, from increasing integration between EuroLeague and EuroCup, player development, instant replay review scenarios and most important for ELPA, proposals for changes in rules and regulations, injury prevention and recovery of the players. The council was joined in its meeting by Euroleague Basketball executives.

Bostjan Nachbar was very satisfied with how the meeting went and had this to say after the council: “I think that such meetings are fundamental for the development of the league. It is encouraging to see, that EuroLeague management actively listenes to people from different backgrounds and is willing to implement new ideas and approaches. It is extremely important, that new ideas also cover players’ point of view. Personally, I will continue to look for ways, where players’ perspective could be heard and seen even more. Being invited and to attend EuroLeague Basketball Advisory Council was a right step in such direction.”
