According to basketnet.gr, Lokomotiv Kuban are interested in signing Greek head coach Soulis Markopoulos. The Greek veteran of the benches has attracted the Russian team's interest with his ability to get his teams to quaalify for the Euroleague as he did with Maroussi and Paok. In Paok's case he managed to do it with measly players' budget that barely exceeded 600,000 euros.
The offer is going to be big and it will be probably the only chance Soulis Markopoulos will get to handle a budget of the size of Lokomotiv. They finished 4th in the Russian Superleague this season but the actual location of the team begs the question.. will he be willing to travel so far out of Greece at his age? If the money is right perhaps he will. It remains to be seen what happens next.
