Just like Jannero Pargo was cut for poor play by Olympiacos last year, it's about to happen to Wafer too. He's just not good enough for the Euroleague level on a big club like Olympiacos.
He never passes, he never plays any defense, and he is always arguing with the coaches. He's a real bargain at $10 million.
Giannakis sends Von Wafer home
Just days before crucial games such as against Partizan and Panathinaikos, Olympiacos' coach Panagiotis Giannakis told Von Wafer to leave the training of the team, according to sources of the Greek sports website Sport24.
According to Sport24 sources the player did not have a conflict with Giannakis himself but with one of the coaches and after he was told to leave he ran to the locker rooms. This comes just hours after an Olympiacos-orientated newspaper, "Protathlitis", revealed that Giannakis is seriously considering of replacing Von Wafer with Patrick Beverley for Greek domestic games, something which would mean that Von Wafer would be only used for Euroleague games.
