Katsikaris has approached Dikoudis
According to greek site basketblog, Fotis Katsikaris is meeting today in Athens with Demos Dikoudis to discuss the possibility of Dikoudis playing for Pamesa Valencia next year.
Dikoudis had played for Pamesa Valencia before during season 2003-2004. He has also played under the guidance of Katsikaris in AEK Athens when he was the assistant coach between 1998 and 2002. The two of them go way back and Pamesa Valencia will be a familiar ground for Dikoudis as it was the place where he had his best european year performance-wise. That season Dikoudis averaged 13.4 points and 5.6 rebounds in 25 games in the ACB. Now that Katsikaris is still head coach in Valencia he'd be more than happy to work with Dikoudis again.
Now that he is being released from Panathinaikos this might be the next step in career, that is to return to Valencia.
