The majority of the EuroLeague GMs shared their views on off-season moves, the competition's future, and 2022-23 season predictions.

No. 1 EuroLeague pick

BasketNews asked the GMs who would be the first player they sign in today's EuroLeague if everyone were available on the market.

They brought six names, but the highest-paid EuroLeague star Nikola Mirotic came up as the No. 1 pick for the most general managers (30.4%).

Mirotic finished second in the 2021 poll, and Vasilije Micic was chosen as the top pick (36.4%).

This time, Micic tied for the 2nd place with Real Madrid tower Walter Tavares (23.1%).

Will Clyburn, Nikola Kalinic, and Dzanan Musa were also mentioned in this survey.

Mike James (#3) and Shane Larkin (#4) were ranked in the BasketNews Top 50, but neither of the GMs picked two of the best EuroLeague scorers.

Best modern EuroLeague team ever

Anadolu Efes Istanbul is up for the challenge to become the first modern EuroLeague team to win the title for three consecutive years.

The three-peat that Ergin Ataman and his crew aim for would make a strong case to be considered the best EuroLeague team ever.

Especially when EuroLeague general managers currently have other franchises that they consider the best since 2000.

The current Anadolu Efes franchise was mentioned in the survey but didn't make the Top 3 in the general managers' best EuroLeague team conversation.

Three franchises went for the same share of votes in the BasketNews GM survey, so it didn't help to find out the best squad ever.

They won 80% of their games and led the league in scoring by a 7-point margin in 2004.

GMs also included 2003 EuroLeague champions FC Barcelona. That Barca team was led by Dejan Bodiroga, Sarunas Jasikevicius, Juan Carlos Navarro, and Gregor Fucka.

The 2017 champions Fenerbahce Istanbul also made the Top 3.

Zeljko Obradovic had one of the deepest championship teams. Bogdan Bogdanovic, Ekpe Udoh, Ali Muhammed, Jan Vesely, Kostas Sloukas, Luigi Datome, Nikola Kalinic, James Nunnally, and Pero Antic were on that roster.

Two different Panathinaikos teams (2001-02 and 2008-09), Olympiacos (2011-12), CSKA Moscow (2005-06), Real Madrid (2014-15), and the 2009-10 FC Barcelona team, were among the other mentions.
