Kleiza Signs $12.2M Deal With Olympiakos
 
Quote:

Linas Kleiza has agreed to a two-year, $12.2 million with an opt-out next year with Olympiakos, a source told Marc Spears of Yahoo!



Excellent pickup, better than Childress IMO.

Papaloukas/Teodosic
Wafer/Halperin
Childress/Vasilopoulos
Kleiza/Vujcic/Erceg
Bourousis/Glyniadakis/Schortsanitis

Not a fan of the Wafer signing, but this one will give them a huge boost. Next step is to pick up an NBA point guard or someone like McIntyre or Arroyo to play in front of Papaloukas.

Love it. Keep those international signings coming. The NBA will be a shell of its former self.

I am honestly impressed that you have the Olympiakos depth chart on lock. Glyniadakis looks familiar. I think the Pistons may have drafted him at some point.

Like the NBA doesn't sign the European players :hammerhead: I like Kleiza but the league will do fine without him... He's only a bench player. The day a high level player leaves for Europe then we can get worried.

big loss? he had a nice game or two...with about 50 average to below average ones.

for 6.1 mill per i could care less. hes not worth half of that. way overrated by this board who probably have seen him play 1-2 games at most (one of which was his 40 point game vs utah a few years ago).

$12.2 million will buy a lot of Ouzo (very tasty and potent Greek drink). Maybe after a year or two in Greece, Kleiza may have honed his skills and will be ready to return to the Nuggets, who retain his rights. Now the Nuggets should pursue a reliable and consistent PF/C and a 3rd PG, maybe Pruitt or Taylor as PGs.

LK isn't worth even close to that amount. Good riddance.

Dominique Wilkins, Bob McAdoo are notable HOFers who left for the Euroleague.

Good news for the Nuggs.

I am impressed by his offensive skills but dude is a horrible defender. A liability in defense. Softy.

:roll: @ Kleiza refining his skills, just a summer ago the Nuggets didnt want to include him in a deal for Ron Artest. And there were people on here against Kleiza even being traded.

Give it another 20 years and the EuroLeague will probably become the top basketball league in the world.
