Cherkassy Monkeys close to Diamantopoulos
Another greek player after Panagiotis Liadelis will play in the ukrainian league and this is Georgios Diamantopoulos.
Cherkassy Monkeys announced the acquisition of greek guard/forward Georgios Diamantopoulos. (1.96-SG/SF) according to ukrainian media. It will soon be announced on their official site as well.
Cherkassy offered 350.000 dollars per year to Diamantopoulos but at the last minute his agent changed his mind and asked for a higher amount. It seems now that the gap has been bridged and Diamantopoulos will be the new player of Cherkassy.
Diamantopoulos averaged 14.9 points and 2.6 rebounds in 18 games of the A1 greek league for Kolossos Rhodes last season.
