Bosnia, led by Mirza Teletovic, and Croatia, led by Bojan Bogdanovic, open play Wednesday in Eurobasket 2013, with Teletovic getting an early call vs. Latvia, at 2:30 p.m., Central European Time (8:30 a.m., ET), and Bogdanovic playing vs. tournament favorite Spain at 5:45 p.m. CET (11:45 a.m., ET). Great Britain, coached by Nets new assistant coach Joe Prunty, plays Israel, also at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Teletovic and Bogdanovic, who is still expected to join the Nets either next season or the season after, are the only two Nets properties who'll play in Eurobasket. Russia's Andrei Kirilenko, MVP of the tournament in 2007, retired from international play in February. Toko Shengelia of Georgia and the Nets 2012 pick Ilkan Karaman of Turkey were expected to play but both had knee surgery in recent weeks.
