The Board of FIBA Europe has decided to relocate EuroBasket 2015 from Ukraine to a new destination, during its meeting in Munich, Germany on Friday.
The Board of FIBA Europe
which convened in Munich, Germany on Thursday, approved a request by the Ukrainian Basketball Federation to postpone any decision on EuroBasket 2015 until the beginning of June.
A talismanic figure of Turkish and European basketball, Hedo (Hidayet) Türkoglu, announced on Monday his decision to retire from international duty, thus terminating an almost two-decade long career with the national team.
Turkey entered a new era at the weekend by handing the reins of their senior national team, nicknamed the '12 Giant Men', to the head coach of powerhouse Galatasaray Liv Hospital, Ergin Ataman.
FIBA Europe wishes to announce that reports on Wednesday claiming that Ukraine wish to withdraw their obligation as hosts of EuroBasket 2015 or postpone this commitment to the 2017 tournament are untrue.
