The Spanish basketball federation (FEB) has announced the official 12-men roster for the upcoming EuroBasket 2022.

Juan Nunez and Fran Guerra were the last two players to be cut from the team, making it the least experienced roster in the country's basketball history.

Nunez was not registered for the last 2023 FIBA World Cup Qualifiers match against the Netherlands last weekend, while Guerra played the least minutes out of all players despite a convincing win.
