It seems that Olimpia Milano made the steal of the season(so far) by signing Greek power forward Antonis Fotsis(2.09-PF) who was rumored to sign for Barcelona. Fotsis had a call from Sergio Scariolo who explained to him why he wants him in the team and in general Olimpia showed far more interest than Barcelona while at the same time offering the same amount money. They capitalised on their Euroleague wild card in the best way.
And let's face it.. the most important reason of all is because Italy is closer to Greece than Spain.. The deal was announced by the official website of Olimpia, where Scariolo sings Fotsis praises and the deal will be for the next 2 seasons. He averaged 8.4 points and 5.1 rebound in 22 games in the Euroleague playing for Panathinaikos.
