Peristeri to sign Nelson and Wilkinson

In Peristeri they decided to get rid of Will Daniels(2.03-SF/PF) and Shaun Pruitt(2.08-C) and replace them with Spencer Nelson(2.03-SF/PF) and Gary Wilkinson(2.07-PF/C)

According to most Greek media the decision has already been taken and the administration of Peristeri will be releasing Will Daniels and Shaun Pruitt due to their lack of performance. Daniels didn't perform as the team expected after a good last season and Shaun Pruitt didn't seem to be adjusting to the Greek League.

Their replacements will be Spencer Nelson and Gary Wilkinson. Nelson played for Aris last season in Greece and Gary Wilkinson started the season in South Korea but it seems that he will be returning to Europe for Peristeri. Nelson has played for Bamberg, Benetton Treviso, Fortitudo Bologna and last season in Aris he averaged 9.4 points 7.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 32 games. Gary Wilkinson graduated from Utah State last season and in South Korea he averaged 9.2 points and 4.1 rebounds in 14 games.

Its worth mentioning here that both Wilkinson and Nelson graduated from Utah State, have the same agent and are both Mormons.
