According to sport24.gr, Spartak St. Petersburg made an offer to Greek forward/center Lukas Mavrokefalides(2.05-PF/C). The offer to Mavrokefalides is of the order of 1 million euros per season and he will have a starting five position in the team as well. Mavrokefalides' soft touch around the basket and his basketball IQ are favored by the newly appointed head coach of Spartak, Jure Zdovc and also his assistant Stefanos Dedas who was an assistant in Paok when Mavrokefalides played there.
He is the only player that reduced his salary from 650,000 euros to 550,000 euros when the owners of Olympiacos asked the players to do so. This might win him some points with them but then again the offer from Spartak is worth twice as much. The article says that he wants to stay in Olympiacos as his first choice but then again 1 million euros is a lot of money, especially these days. Mavrokefalides averaged 8.4 points and 4 rebounds in 18 games in the Euroleague and also 9.8 points and 4 rebounds in 33 games in the A1 league.
