Aris to announce Haralambidis, will try for Vujanic
These could be the last 2 additions for the roster of Aris until the first game of the team for the Eurocup Qualifiers against Lukoil Akademik on September 29th. The saga of Kostas Haralambidis(1.88-PG/SG) will end soon for the Greek veteran who wants to leave the team of Panellinios. Panellinios announced earlier today the signing of Manolis Papamakarios but Haralambidis is still bound by contract to them.
Rumors from Thessaloniki say though that Haralambidis will be released by the end of this week and he will sign a 2 season contract with Aris. He averaged 10.6 points 1.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 35 games last season playing for Panellinios. The deal could be announced possibly tomorrow, although that's not final.
On another note in Aris they're hoping that they will bring a new sponsor on-board that will allow the team some extra buying power. Milos Vujanic(1.92-PG) seems to be the favourite candidate, whereas Samo Udrih is in talks with a Euroleague team and his case won't go through. Vujanic averaged the impressive 17.7 points per game last season for Murcia in the ACB and his salary is probably a lot higher than what Aris can afford but perhaps a compromise can be made.
