Serbia is placed in Group B along with South Sudan, China, and Puerto Rico. The first round is not expected to be very tough for Serbia as they are the highest-ranked team (FIBA Ranking 6) in the group. Led by two-time NBA MVP and newly anointed NBA champion, Nikola Jokic, the Serb would like to continue his winning ways for his nation, trying to bring them the FIBA World Cup. All the group-stage games for Serbia will be held at the Araneta Coliseum in Manila. Let us take a look at the roster for Serbia for the FIBA World Cup.


Team Serbia roster

It is no surprise that everything for Serbia begins and ends with their MVP, Nikola Jokic. However, after winning the 2023 NBA championship, the Serbian team was left in uncertainty as to whether Jokic would play for his nation or recuperate his body for the next season. These queries were soon put to rest as Jokic announced that he would be representing Serbia in the FIBA World Cup. But it is not just Jokic that commands the helm for the team. The roster is filled with other notable NBA players such as Bogdan Bogdanovic, Nikola Jovic, and Aleksej Pokusevski. The full roster is given below:
