You could field a pretty strong team with players who have origins in Bosnia and Hercigovina. Most of the players on this list were either born in Bosnia or are of Bosnian descent.
SUAD SEHOVIC: Suad was once one of the brightest young stars in European basketball a few seasons ago. A devastating knee injury robbed him of some of his athleticism but he has bounced back to be a very solid pro player. Now 25 years old, he has developed into one of the leaders of a very surprising Montenegro team. Suad was close to being a member of the BiH National team a few years ago but the KSBiH balked at guaranteed playing time for him and he moved onto Montenegro instead. SEAD SEHOVIC: Just 23, the younger brother of Suad has developed into a very reliable player for Montenegro as well. He does a little of everything well and is a reliable shooter who rarely forces or takes a bad shot for his team. DINO PITA: Dino is an excellent shooter coming off the bench, he does little else well but can knock down shots from anywhere on the court and has excellent range. He personifies the role of shooting specialist and has developed into an excellent role player. BOJAN BOGDANOVIC: Bojan was kicked off the Croatian team early this summer, raising hopes he would return home and represent BiH, but this was not to be and he rejoined his Croatian teammates. Bojan has great size for a shooting guard at 203cm and is a natural scorer. One of the best in Europe at putting the ball in the basket there is a very good chance he will play in the NBA someday soon. Bojan can score in bunches and is a smooth player who has developed into a consistent threat on the court. DAMIR MARKOTA: Damir is as skilled as any player in Europe and even spent some time in the NBA with the Milwaukee Bucks. He is however, maddingly inconsistent and rarely strings together long stretches were he dominates. He is however an excellent role player who rarely forces the action on the court, that can be a mixed blessing however when you are as talented as he is. DARKO PLANINIC: Darko had a brief chance to display his talent with the New Orleans Hornets summer league team this summer. He rejoined the Croatian National Team just in time to once again display that he is an excellent scoring threat coming off the bench for the team. RASID MAHALBASIC: Rasid is the undisputed leader of his team and is a crafty scorer for his them. More productive than talented, he reminds one a bit of Luis Scola a smart, crafty player who gets every ounce of production out of his body. DAVOR LAMESIC: Davor was one of the most surprising players for Austria this summer, proving to be a crafty solid player who has few weaknesses. He could score, has great range and surprising rebounding and passing ability for a player his size. EMIR PRELDZIC: Emir was once a rising star of basketball whose rise has stalled at the level of good player. He just isnt a good enough scorer or rebounder to make a huge difference even with his amazing passing ability. He doesnt use his strengths as well as he should and prefers to play on the perimeter and his play has leveled off dramatically. Still, Emir is a very solid player who can do some surprising things on the basketball court for his team.

List of players who come from BiH or have ties to the country who played abroad this season...
Rasid Mahalbasic: Rasid has molded himself into one of the better centers in Europe even with his limited athleticism. He is a highly skilled big man who is also one of the best passers in Europe.

He did struggle with shooting three's going 3-25 on the season.
Davor Lamesic: The long term Austrian player had another solid season even as he career begins to wind down at the age of 32.

Darko Planinic: At one point Darko was considered one of the best young centers in Europe when he was picked up by Macabi Tel Aviv a few years ago. His career has derailed a bit from that point on and has bounced around without really establishing himself again. He played in 26 games averaging 9mpg 4.1ppg 2rbpg while shooting 67.9% from two.
Stanko Barac: The former NBA draft pick has never established himself as a top flight European center but has had a solid career none the less.

In the Euroleague he played in 10 games averaging 18mpg 6.4ppg 3.9rbpg while shooting 59.6% from the field.

He played in 30 games averaging 29mpg 11.4ppg 6.3rbpg 1.5aspg while shooting 59.8% from two, 37.6% from three and 85.1% from the FT line.
