Pablo Laso and Carlos Suarez analysed the Euroleague draw for the media.
"Panathinaikos have won the European Cup six times; Fenerbahçe and Khimki are always competitive and traditionally have great players and coaches; Olimpija Ljubljana have great tradition in European basketball and always have quality men. We have yet to know who will be our other opponent, but I'm sure it will be a quality side."
"Every group in the Euroleague is competitive because the championship features the best in Europe. Ours is no exception and we know we'll have to concentrate hard from day one because small mistakes can be very costly. We know there will be no easy games."
