Nick Calathes gave an interview at Το Βήμα της Κυριακής (newspaper) and he said about the NBA. (...) Rumors during the summer. “It was a lot stressful everything that happened this summer. I didn't know where I was going to play next season.

At the same time, my agent was talking with European teams, but at the end the Grizzlies decided to keep me. So I am going back and I will do my best to find a better contract, next season. If I don’t make it, I'll go back to Europe Sportando

Nick Calathes on suspension for doping "I was shocked. I could not believe it. They call me from the lab of the NBA and they told my they found a illegal substance.

When I apologized to FIBA, I was honest. I admit I made the mistake to use something, without knowing what was in it and I had to say that to my team, but I didn’t. They appreciated my honesty".

He rebounds the ball, he can score in the post. He’s probably got about 15-foot range, handle the ball extremely well for a big man. Pretty athletic.
