- Who will reach the ACB Finals?
- In Germany, Giants Nördlingen announced that they won’t play Bundesliga next season and that they wish to return to ProA. As this announcement came on the May 31, the last day possible to avoid a fine, the current season’s last-place team, LTi Giessen 46ers, may stay in the league.
