Triple transfer strike from Paok

Paok BC have announced 3 new transfers in a row via their official site making a comeback after a very quiet first 2 months in the off-season.

First one to be announced was returning swingman Kenny Gregory(1.97-SG/SF) who started playing for Paok last season but when the former president of the team, Dimitris Drossos bailed out, he left to play for Valencia,since the team could not afford his contract anymore. Gregory played 17 games for Paok averaging 14.1 points and 4.4 rebounds. In Valencia he averaged 9.2 points and 3.4 rebounds in 10 games in the ACB.

The second player to be announced was scoring guard Chris Monroe(1.90-SG/PG) who comes from French team Chorale de Roanne. Monroe was the 4th best scorer of the ProA last season averaging 16.1 3.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists in a total of 33 games.

Last but not least was Montenegrin veteran Predrag Drobnjak(2.11-C) who is rumored to end his career in Paok. Drobnjak had in illustrious decorated career in the NBA and Europe but last season he only played 4 games so his ability to question to a series of injuries is debatable.
