According to basketblog.gr, Theo Papaloukas(2.00-PG) has decided to play one more season in Olympiakos and he also decided to seriously drop his salary requirements. It is to be expected as he is the highest paid player of the team with a salary close to 3 million euros. The article also says that Papaloukas has already discussed with Elias Zouros, the new head coach of the Greek National Team, the prospect of playing for the National Team and his wish is to be with the team all the way until the 2012 London Olympics.
Papaloukas took a year off the National Team and there were many people that decided to write him off so to say. He rested during the summer so he returned in quite good form despite his age. So far he has averaged 5.4 points 2.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists in 18 games in the Euroleague and also 6.3 points 2.3 rebounds and 4 assists in 18 games in the Greek A1 league.
