I heard on the radio that Ibaka's naturalization paperwork might not be ready in time, in which case Mirotic would be his replacement.
Suarez and Claver could play some 4. Suarez is more ready to contribute to the NT than Mirotic.
Isn't Mirotic naturalized too?
Mirotic is naturalized too. BUT I consider his a completely different case to Ibaka's, whose naturalization really stinks.
I mean, Mirotic arrived to Spain when he was 15; he's gone to school in Spain, he's grown as a man and as a basketball player in Madrid and, if I'm not wrong, he has even played with the U19 NT.
That said, I think he's not ready to contribute at this level yet. He might be somethig great in the future, but I don't see Scariolo giving him any minutes in this coming Eurobasket. I guess we'll see a lot of Reyes in the PF position, and some Claver too.
If Ibaka is not eligible, things will be something along the lines of:
PF: Reyes/P. Gasol/Claver
C: P.Gasol/M. Gasol
