My ideal five would be:
Willie Solomon (Maccabi)
Theo Papaloukas (Cska)
Anthony Parker (Maccabi)
Luis Scola (Tau)
David Andersen (Cska)
Some notes about the players you have talked about:
Navarro and Garbajosa: they don't have the size, weight and athletic ability to play in the NBA.
Vujcic: he is not a great scorer, defender, rebounder or shot-blocker: only 12.9 ppg and 6.0 rpg in the Euroleague this season, but he is an amazing passer.
Diamantidis: maybe he's the best european perimeter defender but he hasn't got any offensive talent.

The best player in Australia at the moment is Brad Newly. he entered in the draft this year but pulled out at the last minute.

The Papaloukas(Mvp of Eurobasket's Final,All-star team of Eurobasket,All-star team of Euroleague,Mvp of Euroleague's Final Four-Semi Final's - Final ,Mvp Of russian Cup Final ,Best Pg in europe By a Huge Margin) Might Be late for him to get in nba.....

Luis Scola ,Diamantidis ,Navvaro , Vuijic

These Are the Best players,but IMO The BEst pRospects for Nba are :

Javtokas ,Schortsianitis(I think this one can make a REAL impact if he gets lucky) ,Ukic(awesome talent ) ,Scola and Spanoulis-Zisis...They are about the same value (zisis a bit more experienced)

He retired last year and just opened his personal training business in Brisbane. He never quite reached the heights he should have because he didn't want to be the man and carry a team. He would rather be the 3rd option!

David Andersen? Is he the one that played for the Denver Nuggets and got busted for drugs?

Navarro is too thin talk is killing me. If he can average around 26pts in the European Championships against the best athletes or like some call them BASKETBALL PLAYERS of Europe, many of whom play in the NBA, he can certainly compete there. Im still waiting for AIs body to break down. It was expected to start in his second season, and by age 30, he was supposed to be in a wheelchair.

i watched the international tournament in berlin, germany this weekend and was very impressed by marco bellinelli of italy. he is a 6'6" pg/sg and just 20 years old. in their current mock draft, nbdraft.net has him rated at #15 for next year.

from what i saw he could easily go that high or even higher. he was arguably the tournament's best player: moved very well on offense, has a great jump shot with a quick and high release. also went to the basket, resulting in free throws or (on one occation) a nice stuff over a german defender.

he seems to have a good understanding for the game, has some hops and showed decent ball handling and passing. as he is just 20 years old, there is certainly a lot of potential. in a perfect world, he could become the italian version of reggie miller. if all goes wrong, i still see him somewhere in line with someone like trajan langdon. keep an eye on him.
