Lukas Mavrokefalides to play in Russia
Another player will leave Olympiacos this summer and the next one to open the door and walk out is Lukas Mavrokefalides(2.05-PF/C). He's a free agent now and although his first option was Olympiacos the offer that they made him of 650,000 according to redplanet.gr was not enough.
Mavrokefalides was the only player to take a pay-cut last season and it would seem reasonable to upgrade his role in the team now that Bouroussis has moved on. But the strict budget of the new season has dethroned Olympiacos from the big-spenders' elite to the point where they can scarcely afford 1 million euros to pay one of their most important players.
It's uncertain whether Mavrokefalides will take up Spartak's offer of 1.1 million euros or Khimki's offer for 1 million euros for 2 seasons. The great migration of the Greek players is afoot and well on it's way.
