Maroussi aiming for Diamantopoulos or Liadelis
According to novasports.gr Maroussi is aiming for greek veteran Panagiotis Liadelis(1.93-SG) who is currently playing for Azovmash Mariupol. But given the latest developments about the financial problems that Azovmash is facing Maroussi is keen to wait it out and try to secure a contract with Liadelis who seems to have one of the highest contracts in Azovmash. He is in fact the president's favourite players in the last few years as he has been already 3 seasons with Azovmash.
Bu the main candidate is actually Giorgos Diamantopoulos(1.96-SG) who still has not found a team to play in. There have been rumors about Diamantopoulos looking for a contract in the Ukraine and Greece during the summer but he never signed anywhere. Diamantopoulos played for Kolossos Rhodes last season in Greece and averaged 14.9 points and 2.6 rebounds in 18 games of the A1 greek league last season.
Both of these candidates will probably be the replacements for Nikolay Padius for whom Maroussi is currently looking for a new team.
