Panellinios to sign Samo Udrih

They replaced Rancic with a far better player.

According to the vast majority of Greek sports media, Panellinios are very close to securing Samo Udrih(1.95-PG/SG/SF). Samo Udrih is the older brother of Beno Udrih(1.91-PG/SG) of the Sacramento Kings. He will be replacing Damir Rancic(1.98-SG/SF) who returned back to Croatia. Udrih might even make his first appearance in the Greek leagu this Saturday.

Udrih played for Hopsi Polzela in the beginning of the season but then moved on to Cibona where he helped them win the Croatian League and got them to the finals of the Adriatic League. He has also played for Polzela in the beginning of his career. Other teams were Pivovarna Laško, Geoplin Slovan, Union Olimpija, Maurienne SB, Hapoel Tel Aviv, Girona, Granada and Estudiantes. He averaged 9 points 2.3 rebounds 1.8 assists in 13 games in the Adriatic League. He has played 3 games for Slovenia so far averaging 6.7 points 1.3 assists and 1.3 rebounds. He is also a member of the Slovenian National Team.
