Default Olympiakos interested in Lee and Robinson

Olympiakos would be stacked. They already have Childress.

Greek team Olympiakos interested in Knicks David Lee, Nate Robinson

Maybe Olympiakos should be changing its name to the Greece Knicks.

The Greek club is not only pursuing Knicks guard Nate Robinson, but according to a source, it has also contacted his teammate, forward David Lee. It is unclear if Lee has received an offer or if he has interest in playing overseas. Lee's agent, Mark Bartelstein, would not confirm whether he had spoken to Olympiakos but Bartelstein said last night that he is confident that his client will play in the NBA next season.

"I've had a lot of dealings with Olympiakos over the years," said Bartelstein, whose client, Jannero Pargo, played for the Greek team last year. "I'll never say never, but that's not where we're looking right now."

Bartelstein is still hopeful he can work out a deal for Lee, either with the Knicks or with another team through a sign-and-trade. Lee is looking for a deal that will pay him at least $10million annually. Bartelstein believes that is a fair asking price for a player who led the league in double-doubles.

Luol Deng of the Bulls and Andrew Bogut of the Bucks both have contracts that pay them $12 million annually. Toronto's Andrea Bargnani recently signed a contract that averages $10 million per season. For Lee to even consider leaving for Europe, he would have to get a contract that would pay him $10 million to $12 million annually.

Robinson, however, would seriously consider such a move since the reported two-year, $10 million offer he has received from Olympiakos is believed to be more lucrative than what he would get from an NBA team.

Robinson has the option to sign the Knicks' one-year, $2.9 million qualifying offer. Lee's one-year qualifying offer is for $2.7 million. If the Knicks were to lose one or both of their restricted free agents to a European club, it wouldn't be a total loss since the Knicks would still own their rights if they decided to return to the NBA.

Knicks president Donnie Walsh has made it clear that he wants to re-sign both players. If Robinson or Lee receives a contract offer from an NBA team, the Knicks would have seven days to match. But with few teams willing to spend money and even fewer under the salary cap, Robinson and Lee have yet to cash in on the free agent market.

If Nate does sign with Olypiakos, can he still come back to defend his dunk championship?

I dont like how he plays the game, how he carries himself on the court, that hes a punk getting in peoples faces for no reason at all, and because he made the dunk contest even worse. Im not impressed that a shorter guy can do dunks any athletic 6'5+ guy can do and get 50s for it.

But again, most of all its just how cocky he is and how he carries himself on the court. Theres a difference between making basketball plays and sticking up for yourself and teammates and starting shit for no reason and Nate often crosses that line. And his selfish nature irritates me. His game improved last year with that but the years before the way he acted just didnt sit well with me. Im not a fan of people t hat go out of their way to be punks/assholes to get notoriety.

i dont know wtf your talking about...he doesnt get 50's for being able to do dunks, even though hes short...he get points for doing good dunks...and his attitude is great...hes trying to light a fire for his team, especially when they suck ass...and he did more than enough last season to earn my respect...he should have been the starting point guard last season IMO...at least i would miss him, if he isnt in the nba next season..that guy is soo exciting to watch..

Forget his dunks - I'd miss Nate's shot blocking ability.

Obviously this kid has a huge ego because he can do high flying dunks, and plays on the knicks while celebrities give him extra attention.

He can be humble like and just go to work and play his hardest, or just play every game trying to do something spectacular and go on the highlight reel.

Be humble and play his hardest? What is this? Baseball? Buddy, the guy's like the shortest dude out on the court every single night and he works the hardest out of everyone. You have to when you're 5'8".
