At first, the expectation was that Doncic will be available to join the team's practices on June 27, but he had already joined the team in Trieste and will play in a friendly game against Italy.

This season, Doncic averaged 28.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 8.7 assists. The Doncic-led Mavericks went to the Western Conference Finals, where they lost against the Golden State Warriors in 5 games.

Slovenia will host Croatia on June 30 in Ljubljana before heading to Stockholm to take on Sweden in their final game of the First Round of the FIBA World Qualifiers, with the top three teams in the group advancing to the Second Round, which is due to begin in August.

Slovenia sits second in Group C with 2 victories and 2 defeats. With a win against Croatia, they would secure a place in the next stage.

In EuroBasket 2022, Slovenia will play in Group B of the tournament, where they will meet Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and France. The EuroBasket 2022 starts on September 1 this year.
