Olympiakos in negotiations with Romain Sato
According to redplanet.gr, Olympiakos are in negotiations with Central African Republic swingman, Romain Sato(1.95-SG/SF). Romain Guessagba-Sato-Lebel, or just simply, Romain Sato is known mostly for his time in Siena, where he has played for the last 4 seasons. Sato is an all-around player that can score and play defense with equal ease. He is mostly known for his athletic skills but his long range shot is just as impressive.
Sato graduated from Xavier in 2004 and then he was selected at number 52 at the 2004 Draft by the San Antonio Spurs. He never got a chance to play in the NBA, instead he moved to Italy and Jesi in LegaDue where he rocked the rims averaging the impressive 25.5 points per game. After a short pass via Barcelona he signed with Siena back in 2006 and has been there since. Last season he averaged 13.6 points 5.3 rebounds 1.3 assists and 1.5 steals in 16 games in the Euroleague. He also averaged 14.7 points 4.3 rebounds 1.2 assists and 1.8 steals in the LegaA1 leading Siena to yet another Italian League title.
