Maroussi booked Diamantopoulos
According to the majority of greek media Maroussi has booked Giorgos Diamantopoulos (1.93-SG) as it was rumored last week. It may come as a surprise to find out that Maroussi has replaced Padius with a very similar player, nevertheless Diamantopoulos is a more dedicated scorer where Nikolay Padius is more of a defender.
There have been rumors about Diamantopoulos looking for a contract in the Ukraine and Greece during the summer but he never signed anywhere. He has played in Panionios and Olympiakos in the past. 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.
