Andrea Trinchieri's wards remain the favorites this season despite the departure of top scorer Brad Wanamaker as the core of last year's team return led by Finals MVP Darius Miller, Janis Strelnieks, Daniel Theis and Nikos Zisis. The Bamberg side also fortified its roster by signing guards Fabien Causeur and Maodo Lo in the offseason.
