It seems that the days of Lazaros Papadopoulos(2.13-C) in Paok could be over but we've heard that before. Papadopoulos seems to have an offer from Khimki in Russia according to sportando.net. What's interesting here is that Papadopoulos has also Russian citizenship(he was born there) so he can play in Russia as a local player and not as a bosman player. He's already played in Russia before as a player for Dynamo Moscow and he won the Uleb Cup with them back in 2006. Khimki are looking for a replacement for Benjamin Eze who left them for Olimpia Milano.
Papadopoulos has been the cornerstone of Paok throughout this season and that would strike a major blow if he leaves. However Papadopoulos has expressed complaints about his team's inability to pay him on more than one occasions so it's quite possible that he will leave this time. He has averaged so far 11.9 points 7.5 rebounds and 2 assists in 15 games of the Greek A1 league.
