Sasu Salin - EuroBasket 2013 Profile
Team 2012-13: Union Olimpija Ljubljana (Slovenia-Liga Telemach)
Career: Espoon Honka (Finland-Korisliiga, 2007-10); Union Olimpija Ljubljana (Slovenia-Liga Telemach, 2010-13)

The "Garbage Man of Malmi" with the Hollywood-style Colgate smile has captured the hearts of hard-core European basketball fans ever since his introduction to the Euroleague in 2010. Salin was called up to the Finnish national team rotation in summer 2010 because of injuries to some key players', and he tipped off his professional career by being the most accurate three-point shooter of the EuroBasket 2011 Qualification Round. His first season with Union Olimpija moulded him into a Rottweiler-like defensive player, who has been able to infuriate opponents with his positioning, play-reading skills and quick reactions. Once Salin's three-pointers start falling, cover your eyes and pray for your maker. Earlier this summer, Salin signed a two-year extension to his contract with Union Olimpija.
