However, another player the Spurs hold the NBA draft rights to, Greek 6’9″ forward Georgios Printezis, said Sunday he does not have any intentions of signing elsewhere for the remainder of his career. “I have told my manager that no matter what offer arrives, Olympiacos has the first hand.” said Printezis, in an article by EuroHoops.net. “There might be an interest from other teams, but I feel very good in Olympiacos. I wish to close my career in Olympiacos. The team fills me completely and I believe that me and my teammates have much to achieve.”
This morning, Othello Hunter of Olympiacos donated 22.000 bottles of water (1.5 L) to refugees who are currently located at the old airport of the Elliniko suburb of Athens. Hunter and his wife, Alissa made all the appropriate arrangements and with the help of the volunteers that are constantly at the refugees’ side, he provided 22.000 bottles of water in order to help, in his own way, those in need.
According to Eurohoops’ sources, Olympiacos has offered a contract to Italian NBA free agent Andrea Bargnani. The Greek club is making an attempt to bring the Italian international center to Europe, but he is not the only option for the Reds.
At this point, Bargnani is not eager to return to Europe and finish the season in Euroleague. However, Olympiacos has only hours in order to add a player before the end of the Euroleague transfer deadline and the Greeks are making a run on him. That’s why Thompson is also on their radar.
