Panellinios announced Ivan Radenovic
It seems that the rumors sending Ivan Radenovic to Estudiantes were false after all. Panellinios BC of Athens announced yesterday Ivan Radenovic(2.08-PF/C). Radenovic was a target of greek teams in the past as well. Coming from a very good year in college where he averaged 15.1 points and 7.6 rebounds in 31 games he tried his luck the 2007 Las Vegas Summer league for the Clippers but his first contact with the NBA left him a somewhat bitter taste. He only managed to play 3 out of the 5 games and he averaged 2.7 points 3.3 rebounds and 1 assists. Unable to get a contract in NBA he tried his luck in Europe.
Initially he agreed a one-year contract with a greek team in Athens where he was promised a starting-five position in the team rejecting a 2-year contract with a Moscow team on the grounds of getting more playing time. The negotiations turned sour so in the end he ended up playing for Akasvayu Girona where he averaged in 27(24+3) games 5.7 points 3.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists getting more playing time in the play-offs.
By the looks of it Radenovic will be the last addition of Panellinios.
