Bojan Bogdanović, who plays for Turkish club Fenerbahçe Ülker, was named in the best 5 at the end of the tournament on Sunday. Bogdanović averaged 17.4 baskets for Croatia during the championship. Slovenia’s Goran Dragič, France’s Tony Parker, Lithuania’s Linaz Kleiza and Marc Gasol from Spain joined Bogdanović as the top 5. Tony Parker, who led his French side to become 2013 European Champions, was named MVP for the tournament. Croatia finished 4th after losing their 3/4th playoff match to Spain on Sunday.
