Bilbao interested in Mavroeidis
Dimitris Mavroeidis(2.08-C), is coming of age now. According to elcorreo.com, Bilbao and Fotis Katsikaris are interested in signing him for the new season. Katsikaris was briefly the head coach of Aris BC before moving to Bilbao and he did get a chance to see the player in action. Mavroeidis is continuing a streak of 2 very good seasons and has attracted interest from a few european teams. In Maroussi things are not going so well. The players have been notifiied that their monies will be paid to them but in instalments over the next 2 years so the motivation to stay is no longer there. Mavroeidis has averaged 9.6 points and 4.3 rebounds in 20 games in the Euroleague and also 9.7 points and 5.8 rebounds in 30 games in the Greek league so far.
The article also talks about Axel Hervelle(2.07-PF/C) will be staying with Bilbao and he will sign a 3-season contract with them. Fotis Katsikaris did say that Hervelle is probably one of the most useful players he's had this past season because of his passing abilities and he would like to see him stay. Hervelle averaged 7.1 points 5.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 11 games in the Eurocup and also 7.8 points 5.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 18 games in the ACB for Bilbao.
