As the Hoop revealed 11 days ago in Twitter, Aris was interested in one of the best players of the LegaDue and that was Nigerian/British forward/center Ndudi Ebi(2.06-PF/C) that played for Rimini last season. Coach Drucker had Ebi in his sights for some time now and as of recently the interest became even more serious. Ebi can cover both positions in the front-line and he can also shoot the ball if needed. All this combined with his bosman passport make him an ideal candidate for Aris. Ebi also has NBA experience as he was drafted back in 2003 by Minnesota but he didn't get much playing time in the NBA. He has also played for Bnei Hasharon and Carife Ferrara in the past. Ferrara recently expressed interest in the player as well so Aris are not alone trying to sign the player.
Latest information suggest from his agent's side suggest that the interest from Aris is even more intense now that potentially means that the player and the team are in advanced talks. He shares the same agent with Matt Walsh that played in Aris last season. Ebi averaged 15.3 points 13.6 rebounds and 3.2 steals and 1.7 blocks in 33 games in the LegaDue making him the top rebounder of the league by far. In Aris now they're waiting for the imminent collapse of Panellinios to sign Kostas Haralambidis. More on that later.
