In a surprising move Olympiacos announced the signing of European rookie Kalin Lucas(1.85-PG/SG) via their official website. The former leader of Michigan State went undrafted this summer to the dismay of many experts but he will be getting his first chance at glory for the Greek league finalist Olympiacos. It seems that the owners of Olympiacos took their low budget policy seriously signing a rookie fresh from college without any European experience. The consensus in Greece is that they'll pull another McCalebb out of the hat but McCalebb had good seasons with Mersin and Partizan before leading a team like Siena that reached the Final Four.
Anyhow this is the will of the people that pull the strings in Olympiacos and Lucas will have more than enough opportunities to showcase his talent. In his last season with Michigan State he averaged 17 points 2.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists in a total of 34 games.
