Panionios to announce Ryvon Covile
Ryvon Covile(2.06-C) was recently waived from Le Mans and since yesterday evening he has been in Athens waiting to sign his new contract with Panionios. He will be replacing Nigerian forward/center Chinemelu Elonu(2.08-PF/C) whose performance didn't satisfy the new head coach of Panionios, Giorgos Bartzokas. Elonu averaged 7.6 points 6.6 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 9 games in the Greek A1 league.
Covile started the season in Le Mans averaging 4.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 9 games in the LNB but with limited playing time. He also averaged 7.5 points and 2.2 rebounds in 6 Euroleague Qualifying games and 5 points and 5 rebounds in 3 games in the Eurocup. According to superbasket.gr Covile won't be signing his new contract before the existing contract of Panionios with Elonu is broken.
