Default Olympiacos' prime target is Anthony Parker

I found it on a eurpean website, and it's very trustful BTW. Nothing new, but it's the confirmation I needed to rule out AP. It's going to be really hard to keep him. If he chooses money, he goes overseas. If he chooses NBA, he goes to Boston (full MLE), SA or Cleveland. All these teams are contenders and they're in bigger markets, so it's almost impossible to keep AP

take a look at the article

"According to superbasket.gr, Olympiacos is aiming to sign Anthony Parker of the Toronto Raptors, who is a free agent this summer and many NBA teams are after to keeping him in the United States.

The main advantage of Olympiacos over the NBA teams is that the Greek club is able to offer more money to the 34-year old player, a factor that could turn out to be decisive since Parker is at the end of his career."

TalkBasket - Home of Basketball - Olympiacos' prime target is Anthony Parker

BTW this site also informed this week that Printezis haven't reached an agreement with Olympiacos and he won't be back for next season

I just have a feeling he'll stay in the NBA.

He rarely lights anyone up. He's a 10PPG guy who's at times inconsistent.

Wait..........you're right he'd light us up.

if the money that olympicos is offering is along the lines of things i've seen (i seem to remember something like $5MM net — that means after taxes, agent fees, housing and vehicle) he should take it — that's much more than he'll make in the association. we'd probably welcome him back after his deal with a front-office position.

personally i don't think AP will go back to europe because he's already won MVPs there and champions, he has nothing left really to prove overseas
i think AP is either going to come back to TO because of his familiarity with the team and city or he's going to another team to try and win an NBA championship, those 2 options seem to be attitude that i get from AP when i see him play

He's not a starting SG for a team that wants to go to the playoffs. He's already 33/34 and declining. Besides, he'd cost too much for us

Another information - count SA out of this chase, because Finley didn't opt out of his 2,5M deal, so no money spent for SA
