David ‘Dubi’ Pick: Soon-to-be FA guard Dwight Buycks has offers from Euro-power teams Olympiacos and Valencia, agent @ChrisPatrickJr confirms.
Acie Law returned to Greece in order to be medically examined by Olympiacos and that trip proved to be the end of the road for him with the Reds. The Greek club decided to use the opt out clause in his contract and Law is now a free agent. The deadline for Olympiacos in order to use the release clause expired today and the Reds parted ways with one player who had a key role in winning the two back to back Euroleague titles and the Greek championship on 2012. Law is almost fully paid for last season and now he is also expected to get a buy – out fee, becoming officially a free agent.

“After finishing my third year in Tel Aviv I received more offers from the NBA,” the Croatian revealed. “Toronto wanted me again, the Washington Wizards and Atlanta Hawks were also in the picture, but I accepted an offer from Olympiacos (Greece) which I couldnt refuse.” According to reports, Vujcic’s contract value in Greece was estimated at 4.5 million euros.
Darius Morris is close to Olympiacos according to Djordje Matic. Morris signed a ten day deal with Clippers and may join the Euroleague champions if Los Angeles won’t extend his deal.
Free agent forward Josh Childress is receiving strong interest from three teams on a potential veteran’s minimum deal, a league source told RealGM. Childress has focused his career on the NBA, and he rejected a lucrative offer from Olympiacos this offseason for an opportunity to stay in the league, a source said.
Former NBA guard Acie Law has agreed to a two-year, $2.8 million gross contract to return to Olympiacos of Greece, a source told Yahoo! Sports.
Roberto Bascoy: Chris Shentziou, Kostas Papanikolaou’s press officer: “Papanikolaou will decide between Olympiacos and NBA. He’s not considering another European team”
So there is a strong chance that the Blazers will trade his rights and many teams has shown interest. Spurs and Mavericks are among them, as well as the Knicks who drafted Papanikolaou on No48 of last year’s draft. Knicks GM Glen Grunwald visited London for a day, just to watch him on the semifinal against CSKA!
Kostas Papanikolaou of Olympiacos, winner this year “rising star award” as he team defended its title in London, has already proved that he is one of the best European players and this why many NBA teams are thinking of approaching Portland to acquire his rights. Blazers followed him closely throughout the season, but at this point it seems that “Pap” in not on the immediate plans of Neil Olshey. Portland (besides starter Nicolas Batum) also has another talented European forward with Spaniard Victor Claver and is no need to “overload” the small forward position.
Eddie Johnson: Congrats to the Big Red (Olympiacos basketball club on its 2nd straight championship. I am so proud to be a part of your success.

But, as reported by David Pick, the decision was already made. Dorsey will return to the NBA leaving Olympiacos who agreed to release him.
Olympiacos officially announced that they have re-signed big man Joey Dorsey for two more years. The player moved to Olympiacos in the middle of the season 2011-12 and won with Reds both Euroleague and Greek A1.
Giorgos Printezis informed Fenerbahce/ Ulker that he will not accept its offer and he seems to have decided to renew his contract with Olympiacos and will remain a member of the Euroleague reigning Champions until the summer of 2015.
