The decision to bail out on Greece’s PAOK has followed Michigan’s DeShawn Sims back to the states. In case you don’t know, Sims recently left the team and the country without telling anyone. Understandably his former Greek team is not happy and has blocked Sims’ move to the D-League. For Sims to play in the States, PAOK must now be compensated. Since no D-League team is likely to pay, the compensation would have to come from Sims himself. Lost Lettermen
