Rockets, Spanoulis agree to 3-year deal


By JONATHAN FEIGEN
Copyright 2006 Houston Chronicle
The Rockets reached agreement with guard Vassillis Spanoulis on a three-year contract worth more than $5 million, the largest initial contract they had ever offered a second-round pick.

Spanoulis told Athens newspaper Eleftheros Typos that he would officially accept the contract offer sometime today or tomorrow Houston time.

The Rockets acquired the rights to Spanoulis in an exchange of second-round picks during the 2004 Draft. He played well enough for Maroussi Honda to move to Greek league power Panathanaikos last season and helped lead that team to the Greek league championship.

A member of the Greek Olympic team in 2004 Spanoulis, a 6-3 1/2-inch combination guard, is training with the Greek team for the World Championships and will not be in Houston until September.

Not sure how many folks here know him but the Rockets picked him up in the draft a couple years ago. Carrol Dawson has been very high on him saying he was a cross between "Kobe Bryant and Tony Parker" and said he was the best player on the best team over there. He also mentioned that he would be able to contribute this season. Hopefully, CD knows what he is talking about.

Here is a highlight mix on him. Now i know you can't tell how good a player is with a highlight mix, but atleast you can see his game:

I hate Greek names.

But if he's good, fine. I won't be buying your jersey though sir.

I heard they also call him "Kill Bill" because Vassilis is greek for "William".

fast-foward to the 37 second, he travels on a wide open lay-up, but the refs miss it... just watch it in slow motion afterwards too...

While we're on nicknames. I made one up for the Kandi Man. I don't know if it has been said before but.

Michael Olo-walk-on-d

I THINK that's true but the camera angle kind of made it hard to get a good view.

I can't recall. I THINK I might remember it.

I also remember Sprewell when playing for the Wolves I THINK taking liek 4 steps and not getting called.

I THINK the people with no league wide credibility would never get away with anything like that.
