Panionios has booked Tapoutos
According to greek website gazzetta.gr Panionios seems to have booked greek small forward Christos Tapoutos(2.04-SF) for next season. Tapoutos was rumored a few weeks ago to be in discussions with Aris but they never went through. The reason for that might be the great progress that youngsterKostas Papanikolaou(2.02-SF) of Aris has made which was accompanied by a gold medal in the U-18 European Cup. According to the article Panionios booked Tapoutos to balance out the loss of Ibrahim Jaaber to Roma.
Tapoutos averaged 11.5 points and 4.4 rebounds in 24 games this season in the Greek A1 league.
