The first new transfers this season might start early this transfer season for greek team, Panellinios. They seem to be in contacts with 3 greek players at the moment. Coach Zouros' attitude to base the team on greek players is a given.
The first 3 new transfers seem to be Dimitris Papanikolaou(2.01-SF), Giannis Georgalis(2.00-SF) and Vassilis Xanthopoulos(1.86-PG). The latter 2 have been playing for Panionios this season in the greek A1 league and the Euroleague while veteran Dimitris Papanikolaou played for AEK Athens once again after a previous season plagued with injuries. The announcement for these transfers are rumored to appear soon.
AEK have been plagued by financial problesm and still owe salaries to Papanikolaou, while the president of Panionios, Ilias Lianos, made it clear that the team's budget will be decreased in the next season.
