The Brazilian Basketball Federation will certainly be reassured when their national team list has the most experienced players at FIBA ​​World Cup 2019.

After bringing 23 players to the friendly tournament in France, Brazilian national coach Alexanderar Petrovic announced the final list of 12 names to join him at FIBA ​​World Cup 2019.

After defeating Argentina (89-82), Montenegro (80-69) and losing to French host (86-72) at the beginning of the week, the Croatian head coach said, he and his students had ready to go to China.

Rafael Hettsheimeir is the last player to be removed from the list after returning from France. The Brazilian team will travel to China with a mix of veterans - players who have participated in the World Cup four times like Alex Garcia, Anderson Varejao and Leandro Barbosa. Along with potential stars Bruno Caboclo, Yago Dos Santos and Marcos Louzada - players picked by the Atlanta Hawks in the last draft.

"After three friendly matches in France, we were more determined. For tactical reasons and review of all players on the list, I decided to cut Hettsheimeir", explained Petrovic.

Brazil is one of the few national teams that have never missed the FIBA ​​World Cup in the last 5 decades. Brazil will be in Group F with New Zealand, Greece and Montenegro.
