Rumors about Andersen and Olympiakos
Could Andersen return to Europe?
According to Greek portal sport.gr, Olympiakos are interested in signing Australian forward/center David Andersen(2.12-PF/C), currently of the Houston Rockets. The article quotes publications of the Serbian press although nothing in particular and it says that the Houston Rockets might not be interested in keeping Andersen after a mediocre season, especially now that they're running out of space in their salary cap.He has one more season in his contract with Houston.
Andersen has played under Ivkovic in the past, during his days in CSKA Moscow. He has also played for Virtus Bologna in Italy and Barcelona in Spain. Andersen holds a Danish passport that makes him a very valuable commodity for any European team. The departures of Vujcic and Schortsanitis leave some gaps in the front-line of Olympiakos so Andersen could be a good choice for them, provided he is free from Houston. He averaged 5.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 63 games last season in the NBA.
