12 Boston Celtics alumni participating in 2022 EuroBasket

·2 min read

A number of alumni from the Boston Celtics are planning to play in the 2022 EuroBasket competition, the first in five years due to the pandemic. Currently slated to start in two weeks with 34 total NBA players on 17 different teams, the EuroBasket competition — in full, the European Basketball Championship — normally takes place every four years with up to 24 teams participating.

Historically, it had previously run every two years, but now has switched to a similar model as the FIBA World Cup, and the last was held in 2017 before the pandemic, with conditions in 2021 deemed too fraught to hold the competition. But now the EuroBasket is back with one current Celtics player and 11 alumni.

Let’s take a look at them all.
