Jamar Butler to play in Greece?
According to greek media, Jamar Butler(1.85-PG) will be the first transfer of foreign players for the newly created team of Larissa. The name of the team is yet unknown and coach Kalafatakis that was going to be the head coach resigned.
The newly formed team of Larissa will be a union of Olympia Larissa and the former AEL team but the people who will be running the team are taking their time getting everything organised. They had already lined up coach Giorgos Kalafatakis but he decided to step down, probably realising the severity of the situation and how unlikely it would be for the team to survive in the A1 league without a roster, any preparation stage and no friendly games of any kind. Surely it's the main contender to be relegated to the A2 league and the season hasn't even started.
Nevertheless Greek media make word of Jamar Butler, who played for Caserta in Italy and Celcuk University in Turkey last season averaging 8.3 points 1.9 rebounds and 2 assists in 8 games in Turkey. Butler played with Kostas Koufos in Ohio State before graduating in 2008.
