October 27, 2014 Updates

David Aladridge: You had a couple of years left on your Barcelona deal. What made you think this was the right time to come over? Kostas Papanikoulau: First of all, what I saw, was the team showed to me that they really wanted me to come here, and they really want to give me this chance, was a big factor. I talk with Daryl, I talk with Coach McHale. That kind of make a player feel like they really want me, you know? After this offer, I would say I will be like, pardon the expression, I will be like a fool if I don't take this offer. And also, I don't want to miss this opportunity, and five years [later] go back and say 'why didn't I go back then, when I could?' Because you don't know. You don't get these chances every day...great players had the opportunity, and they never did it. It was a life dream for me, and I wanted to give it a shot, you know? I don't know if I'm going to be good for this league or not, but at least when I go through my career, I will say, at least I gave it a chance. At least I fought for it. I didn't make it, or I made it. I don't know. NBA.com

FC Barcelona was interested in Gigi Datome, but he has chosen Detroit. "My goal is to try another year in the NBA and draw a line with my experience at the end of next season. I signed a two-year deal precisely because so many players, in their first season in America, have had difficulties. There was an offer or a negotiation but anyway we stopped it, along with my agent, because I decided to stay in the NBA." La Gazzetta dello Sport
