Benetton Treviso wants Pat Calathes
According to italian newspaper Corriere del Veneto, Benetton Treviso has set sights on Pat Calathes who wasn't drafted and will try to seek his luck abroad. After Dashaun Wood and Gary Neal Benetton wants to sign Calathes to make a competitive team for the Uleb Cup competition.
Sources from Greece say that Pat Calathes has not acquired his greek passport yet which means that he might have to sign as an import player to begin with. The article does not mention if the negotiations have proceeded at all. One might think that Calathes having a greek passport would interest mostly greek teams as he won't occupy an import or EU player in the roster.
Last season he averaged 17.5 points 7.5 rebounds 2.7 assists and 1.2 blocks per game. Pat Calathes is a tall(2.09) small forward with great court vision and passing skills. It remains to be seen if he will play in that position in Europe or moved to the power forward position.
