All statistics correct as of 5 April 2017.1 Sponsored name, referring to 7DAYS.

The 2016-17 EuroCup Basketball season, also known as 7DAYS EuroCup, for sponsorship reasons,[1] was the 15th season of Europe's secondary level professional club basketball tournament, organised by Euroleague Basketball. It was the ninth season since it was renamed from the ULEB Cup to the EuroCup, and the first season under the title sponsorship name of 7DAYS.

The 2017 EuroCup Finals were played between Unicaja and Valencia Basket, and won by Unicaja, which was their first EuroCup title, and their second title overall in a European-wide competition, after they previously won the Kora? Cup 16 years earlier. As the winners of the 2016-17 EuroCup Basketball competition, Unicaja qualified for the European top-tier level 2017-18 EuroLeague season.

Format changes

In April 2016, Euroleague Basketball agreed on a new competition format, with 24 teams that will compete in four groups of six teams, with a double round-robin format. The four first qualified teams of the four groups will compete in four groups of four teams, with a double round-robin format. The two first qualified teams of the four groups will play quarterfinals, semifinals, and the finals, with a best-of-three playoffs.[2]

Team allocation

A total of 24 teams from 12 countries were expected to participate in the 2016-17 EuroCup Basketball,[3] but finally 20 teams from 9 countries participate in the competition.

FIBA-Euroleague Basketball controversy

In July 2016, Italian clubs withdrew from the competition after several threats from FIBA,[4][5] and were replaced by Lietkabelis, Krasny Oktyabr, MZT Skopje Aerodrom and Montakit Fuenlabrada.[6] In September 2016, after the withdrawal of AEK, Partizan NIS and Stelmet Zielona Góra due to the pressures and threats they received from FIBA and National Federations,[7][8][9]Euroleague Basketball announced that will review candidate clubs to fill the vacancies,[10] but finally reduced to 20 teams.[11]

Draw

The draw was held on 7 July 2016, 13:15 CEST, at the Mediapro Auditorium in Barcelona.[14] The 24 teams were drawn into four groups of six, with the restriction that teams from the same country could not be drawn against each other. For this purpose, Adriatic League worked as only one country. For the draw, the teams were seeded into six pots, in accordance with the Club Ranking, based on their performance in European competitions during a three-year period and the lowest possible position that any club from that league can occupy in the draw is calculated by adding the results of the worst performing team from each league.[14]

Playoffs

In the playoffs, teams played against each other must win two games to win the series. Thus, if one team wins two games before all three games have been played, the game that remains is omitted. The team that finished in the higher Top 16 place will play the first and the third (if it is necessary) legs of the series at home. The playoffs involves the eight teams which qualified as winners and runners-up of each of the four groups in the Top 16.
