Default Printezis Takes Olympiacos To Game 5 in Greek Finals

Raptors second round pick from last year Giorgos Printezis lead his team to the final game (best of 5 series) of the Greek Finals.

I'm not 100% sure what the quality of basketball is like there, but can only assume its as competitive as most leagues overseas, but could he be a bench player possibility for us next season or do you think it's a little premature to bring him over now?

I'd rather him graduate from Olympiacos to a team in Spain or Russia. Stash him away in Europe for another 3-4 seasons, then bring him over. I don't think he'd be ready to play in the association for 08-09.

I think he has a shot. He doesn't have to come to the NBA right away. Obviously the Spurs saw something in him to draft him and the Raps saw something in him to trade for him. He's got a decent sized body, 6'8"/6'9", 210. let him play in Europe for another 3-4 seasons then bring him over as a bench guy.

I don't know, the guy only averages 6 points a game in the Greek League.

Gaudy, I know. Like I said before, let's hope he catches on in Spain or Italy next season.

Yeah, I guess you never know, but I still say his chances are slim to none.

I didn't realize he was only 23.
