Kaimakoglou agreed terms with Panathinaikos
Kostas Kaimakoglou(2.05-PF) has agreed to continue his career in Panathinaikos for the next 2 seasons. The Greek power forward is free from Maroussi and he did say that he would want to play for a Euroleague team. Kaimakoglou said those words in his parting statements after the end of the play-offs finals against Panellinios. There were already rumors that dated a few months back about a pre-existing deal between Kaimakoglou and Panathinaikos and it seems that they weren't false.
Kostas Kaimakoglou has played for Maroussi for the last 5 seasons after moving from Near East back in 2004. He is a late bloomer and has grown as a player the last few years. This will be his break at the age of 27 to play for a club of the caliber of Panathinaikos. Last season he averaged 10.1 points and 2.8 rebounds in 19 games in the Euroleague and also 13.1 points and 5.2 rebounds in 32 games in the Greek A1 league. It's possible that his transfer will be announced tomorrow along with the rest of them.
