Default Since FIBA EuroBasket Now Allows 14 Players On A Roster - Will Olympics Do The Same?

FIBA Europe changed the rules so that now the EuroBasket allows 14 players on the rosters instead of 12. So the question I have is, has the Olympics also changed the roster limit to 14?

that is very interesting.

It sure would make it easier to fill out a roster for Olympic play.





What I really wish though is that the NBA and FIBA could come to some agreement to where the rules are all the same across all leagues.

FIBA hardly controls any leagues at all. That was years ago.
