Panellinios announced Steven Smith
Steven Smith(2.03-PF) was announced today by the official site of Panellinios BC. The deal is valid until the end of the season and Smith will be returning to Greece after season 2008-2009 where he was leading the scoring board playing for Kolossos Rhodes for most of the regular season but an achilles tendon rupture cost him dearly. Last season he played for Ironi Nahariya in Israel and this season he started in Oldenburg but he couldn't adapt to the team's style of playing so he was released.
In Panellinios they needed a center but Steven Smith's case came up so they didn't hesitate to sign because of his previous record in Greece. This season he averaged 8.5 points and 4.7 rebounds in 12 games in the Bundesliga. However Smith is replacing Andre Brown who is a center but Smith is a power forward. Only time will tell if this will help Panellinios who are currently running a bad 1-7 record in Greece.
