Jeremy Richardson will not renew with Aris, he has other offers..

A few weeks ago it seemed certain, but today it seems impossible..

According to, Jeremy Richardson(2.01-SF) will not be renewing his contract with Aris. Like many other players before him, (Jeremiah Massey, Darius Washington, Mike Wilkinson etc..), Jeremy Richardson made a name for himself playing for Aris and therefore attracting the attention of many Euroleague level teams.

The American sharp-shooter came from the NBA where he had very little playing time, playing on and off between the NBA and the NBDL he decided that it was time to make the next step and play in Europe. In the Eurocup he averaged 14.4 points and 4.5 rebounds in 13 games whereas in the Greek League he averaged 12.6 points and 3.3 rebounds in the Greek league in 26 games. It's rumored that after Aris offered to renew with Richardson they were quoted almost the 3 times his current contract by his agent. The article says that Richardson has offers from Euroleague teams and Aris cannot compete in that department, especially now that the team is in the middle of administration changes.
