The Paris European Games pre-season tournament participants have been announced.

Four teams will take part in the pre-season games - Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv, LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne, ALBA Berlin, and EuroCup newcomer Paris Basketball, which is the host of the entire event.

"We are happy to take part in the Paris tournament, it is a high-level event with great teams," Maccabi's new head coach Oded Kattash said about the occasion.

It's the second year that the tournament is being hosted. Last year, three of the four teams - ALBA Berlin, Paris Basketball, and ASVEL - were the same, with AX Armani Exchange Milan participating instead of Maccabi.

"We are excited about coming back to the tournament. It has been established as a high-level preseason tournament and hopefully, it will last for a long time. It is a great meeting point for a lot of coaches, executives, and fans in a great city," ALBA's sporting director Himar Ojeda Perez told.

The tournament will be held in Paris in the iconic Halle Georges-Carpentier hall on September 10th and 11th. The fans will be able to see the reshaped Maccabi backcourt in action as well as Nando de Colo's comeback to playing in France. Ticket prices start at 10 euros and can be purchased here.
