After a two days negotiation, Kostas Papanikolaou decided not to accept the offer of Houston Rockets and he will not make the jump from Barcelona to the NBA. As he recently said to Eurohoops, he was willing to make a financial sacrifice, however the offer of the Rockets just wasn’t enough. The NBA team informed the representatives of the player that the four million US dollars for next two seasons was the best deal they could offer and under those conditions, Papanikolaou will remain in Europe.
