Krum Doychinov(2.07-C) was being tried by Aris Thessaloniki, but the bulgarian center did not manage to convince coach Andrea Mazzon that he deserves a spot in the team. Furthermore, Jeremiah Massey(2.02-PF) spoke to greek radio station Libero FM and said that he misses Greece and the fans of Aris. Nevertheless he said that his priorities lie with Real Madrid at the moment and the final race to the play-offs final. He said at some point in the future he would like to play for Aris again.
The morning before the radio show a greek newspaper (Spor tou Vorra) published rumors that Massey has agreed to play for Aris next season on the premise that Real would lend the player to Aris much like the case of Lazaros Papadopoulos that was lent to Fortitudo. Massey himself said that noone knows what happens in Real this summer as there are elections for a new president and anything could happen.
