Kavala announced Milton Palacio, Sow to follow?

Kavala signed in a suprising move, American point guard Milton Palacio (1.93-PG).

The deal was announced today via the official website of Kavala BC and Palacio will be replacing the recently departed Kevin Shileds(1.93-SG) that was not needed by the new head coach Vangelis Alexandris.  Palacio might seem out of Kavala's league when it comes to paychecks but Palacio didn't make it easy for himself when he failed to meet up with the rest of the team of Partizan in Chicago due to personal reasons. Hence he was kicked out of the team and now he will be joining Kavala until the end of the season helping them to stay in the league.

Palacio played for Vancouver, Boston, Phoenix, Cleveland, Toronto and Utah in the past in the NBA and in Europe he has only played for Partizan, before moving to Khimki. Last season he averged 6.4 points 2.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 33 games in the Russian Superleague for Khimki.

According to, Pape Sow(2.08-C) might be the next player to be announced by the Greek team. The article says that Kavala made an offer to Sow this morning and he accepted it. The deal might be announced later on in the week.
