Kaimakoglou as an alternative to Printezis?

It seems that yet another player from Maroussi might be heading to Olympiakos and this time its Kostas Kaimakoglou (2.06-PF) according to There seem to be problems in the negotiations with Giorgos Printezis(2.06-PF). The greek power forward seem to be asking a contract of 1 million euros where as Olympiakos are offering 700,000 euros.

That difference of 300,000 is considerable and they want to be prepared in case the negotiations go sour. Printezis has been involved in rumors with the Toronto Raptors and it is a possibility that he might head to the NBA as they still have his NBA rights. Head coach Jonas Kazlauskas is considering calling Kaimakoglou to the preparation stage of the National Team which shows how much a great season he has had. In the regular season he averaged 9.2 points 5.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 23 games. In the play-offs he averaged 12 points 5.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 10 games.
