Kyritsis and Wesson to PAOK??
According to greek site basketblog.gr Alexis Kyritsis and K'Zell Wesson will be following Dimitrios Drosos to Paok if he takes over the administration of the team. The betting tycoon has been involved with the administration of Sporting Athens which he abandoned in order to take over AEK Athens. Earlier this summer though he made statements declaring that he will be leaving AEK as he can't agree terms with former AEK chairman Ioannis Filippou. The details are shady and noone really knows why Drosos left AEK take he took over when the club was falling apart and is still falling apart as AEK doesn't have any administration currently.
Another team that is falling apart is PAOK BC which has debts that sum up to about 2.7 million euros and he is interested in taking over. PAOK was almost relegated to the A2 league last season but luckily for them the outcomes of other games were favorable although they lost the last game against Aris. Kyritsis averaged 13.2 points 2.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 28 games whereas K'Zell Wesson averaged 12.4 points and 8.8 rebounds.
If the deal is accomplished with PAOK these 2 players will be following Drosos to PAOK. Rumors have it that they are bound by private contracts to his own company as he did in the past for players of Sporting that followed him to AEK when he took over.
