Vasileidadis was ready years ago to be on Greece's national team. He will still have to make it. At his position of SF there is Kaimakoglou, Perperoglou, Vasilopoulos, Pelekanos, Printezis - all NBA level players so it is hard to make it if you are a SF.
Vasileiadis is in the top 15 or so Greek players probably so he has a chance to make it but there is a lot of competition for him. Papaloukas does not have anything to do with him making it. The point guard spots are between Zisis, Nick Calathes, Papamakarios, and Charalampidis.
I would take him for the team, but I admit it is very hard to choose between him Perperoglou, and Pelekanos. Only 2 of them can probably make it so Vasileiadis might have to wait another year to make it. But Vasileiadis is an elite level scorer and shooter and that's what Greece needs.
