Von Wafer was expelled from practice

Von Wafer was expelled from the practice of Olympiakos by head coach Panayotis Giannakis.

The former NBA star had a verbal argument with someone during a practice session yesterday and Giannakis asked him to leave. According to, Wafer didn't actually have an argument with Giannakis but one his coaching assistants instead. The article says that Wafer left running(?!) to go back into the locker rooms.

Later on they tried to talk him into returning to practice. The consensus in Greek media is that Giannakis doesn't really trust Wafer, who has had a really hard time trying to adjust to the european style of basketball. Chances are that Wafer might be replaced in the Greek league by Patrick Beverley once he has completely recovered from his injuries.
