The latest Greek acquisition for Bilbao can be Vangelis Mantzaris(1.95-PG) according to gazzetta.gr. The Greek portal says that Fotis Katsikaris wants to sign Mantzaris as he is a free agent next season when his contract with Peristeri expires. Let's not forget that Bilbao also hold the rights to Nikos Pappas(1.98-PG/SG) who is currently playing on loan for Kolossos Rhodes and who also has one more season in his contract with Bilbao.
So Mantzaris could be the next addition for Bilbao and could join Kostas Vasileiadis and Dimitris Mavroeidis in the roster of the Basque team. Mantzaris has had his breakout season when placed at the helm of Peristeri averaging 8.4 points 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 19 games in the Greek A1 league so far.
The key detail here is the ties to a specific Greek agent that represents Vasileiadis, Mavroeidis, Katsikaris and Pappas and he also has ties to the owner of Bilbao and his players agency. He doesn't represent Mantzaris at the moment but you never know if this changes.
