Koufos is already a hot name with Orlando, Sacramento and Boston showing interest on him and the Bucks are also in the mix. The team is in the market for a center and Koufos is one of the candidates. The offer that Koufos is going to get is directly connected with the money which the team will have to spend in order to re-sign Khris Middleton.

Kostas Koufos is a free agent, despite playing limited minutes behind Marc Gasol he seems ready for a bigger – even a starting – role in a team and that’s why he is name is rumored to be gaining interest from many NBA teams. According to US sources not only Memphis may try to keep him – a scenario which is tied to the fate of an other free agent, Marc Gasol – but also Orlando, Sacramento and Boston have an interest on him.
Is the movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” an accurate portrayal of Greek weddings? Kosta Koufos: (Laughs) The movie is actually pretty much on point. We are both 100% Greek and even speak the language fluently. We are very proud to be Greek Americans but our wedding is going to be pretty modern. It will be at a Greek Church but it won’t be so Greek like the movie. So safe to say that Greek food will be on the menu? Of course. I really like dolmades which is basically grape leaves wrapped around rice. Whenever we go play in Utah my grandmother will give me a big thing of them. She hooks its up and so does my mom when go to Cleveland. No better food than a home cooked meal.

Earlier this season the Cleveland Cavaliers called the Memphis Grizzlies to see if they were interested in trading Kosta Koufos, the Grizzlies’ effective backup center. The Grizzlies haven’t been willing thus far to part with Koufos, a 7-footer who is an underrated rim defender with a reasonable contract, despite getting calls about him since last summer. In addition to the Cavs, the Sacramento Kings are among the teams that are interested.
Seven members of the Memphis Grizzlies now are dealing with a stomach virus, and their status is uncertain for Friday’s game with the Boston Celtics. The Grizzlies announced Thursday that guards Tony Allen, Courtney Lee and Beno Udrih, forwards Jon Leuer and Jarnell Stokes, center Kosta Koufos and guard/forward Quincy Pondexter all are ill and are questionable for the Boston game.
