Panathinaikos announced Drew Nicholas for 2 years
Panathinaikos announced just a few minutes ago signing a 2-year contract with Drew Nicholas. The announcement is very short and can be found here.
A great new transfer from Panathinaikos that along with Pekovic and Fotsis are building one of its strongest rosters ever. The fans of Panathinaikos will remember Drew Nicholas this year scoring 29 points against them in the Top-16 stage with 5/12 3-point shots.
Nicholas is great combo-guard and a natural scorer who career ended shortly this year after his refusal to board the plane to Belgrade. The administration of Efes Pilsen was not so happy about that and they decided to end his contract. Nicholas averaged 16.5 points 3 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 14 games in the Euroleague for Efes Pilsen.
