It's been five years since Savrasenko last put on a national team jersey. He actually had plans to retire from basketball this summer, but only until he received a call-up to the Russia's training camp once again, which he could not refuse. The 34-year-old looked like he's twenty during the VTB League final series last season. Apart from huge experience which includes a triumph at EuroBasket 2007, Aleskey brings defensive presence on the court for this team. He is not as useful on the offensive end these days, but is still a big pick-and-roll threat. With Russia being short in centers the three-time Euroleague champion has a great chance to make it to Slovenia and play at his 5th EuroBasket.
