Papadopoulos on loan to Fortitudo
According to bolognabasket.it Lazaros Papadopoulos(2.10-C) will be playing for Fortitudo Bologna until the end of the season on loan from Real Madrid. The greek-russian center that has been sidelined the last few weeks by coach Plaza will be spending the last few days of his contract as a player of Fortitudo. This arrangement works best for Real and Fortitudo as one of them is getting rid of a large sum of Papadopoulos' contract where as Fortitudo will be getting him for seriously less money than the 2 million euros tariff on his contract.
He has averaged 4 points and 2.3 rebounds in 4 games in the Euroleague playing on an average 13:46. In the spanish league he has averaged 3 points and 1.5 rebounds while playing a bit more than 13 minutes per game.
