Spain, to Group G with Georgia, Ukraine and North Macedonia

The Spanish National Team already knows its rivals for the qualifying windows for the 2023 World Cup, which will be played in Japan, the Philippines and Indonesia.

The National Team already knows its way to the 2023 World Cup, which will be played in Japan, the Philippines and Indonesia together. Despite the fact that Spain is the current champion, it is not guaranteed a place. Yes, Japan and the Philippines have it as organizers; Indonesia will have to be among the eight best in the Asiabasket to guarantee a World Cup ticket. The national team will play the Windows in Group G together with Ukraine, Georgia and North Macedonia. In the second round, it will win Group H, which includes Russia, the Netherlands, Iceland and Italy.

The draw, held in Geneva and which has had Rudy Fernández as an innocent hand, clarifies the path of Spain for the coming years, in a new era that will no longer have historical players who have already announced their goodbye to the National Team, such as the Gasol or Sergio Rodríguez. Let us remember that for the draw, FIBA has divided the 32 European teams into eight groups according to their ranking. Spain, along with France, Slovenia and Serbia, were in pot one and their rivals have come out of four (Croatia, Montenegro, Latvia and Ukraine), five (Finland, Georgia, Belgium and Hungary) and eight (Macedonia, Sweden , Portugal and Slovakia) .

The classification format is maintained: a total of six Windows will be played (between November 2021 and February 2023) with two games in each of them. In the first three, the National Team will face the rivals determined by this Tuesday's draw. The first three go to the next round, where they drag the results and will join the three teams from another group. Twelve teams will go to the World Cup in total, the best three from each of the groups.

As in previous Windows, there will be no NBA or Euroleague players at the Windows during the club season, although Scariolo may have some reinforcements. This is the case of Víctor Claver, who has changed Barcelona for Valencia, or Ilimane Diop, now at Herbalife Gran Canaria. Although, in principle, the calls will not change much with respect to those of previous Windows (Darío Brizuela, Xabi López-Arostegui, Jaime Fernández, Rubén Guerrero, Sebas Saiz ...).
