Olympiacos to sign Matt Howard?

It's all over the news..


According to basketblog.gr and the vast majority of the Greek media, the next player that will sign with Olympiacos is Matt Howard(2.06-PF). This seem like an odd choice for the team that signed Josh Childress not so long ago. He will be the second undrafted player from the class of 2011 for Olympiacos if he signs but although he might not seem physically adequate for the testosterone-pumped world of the NBA, he seems to be ideal to play in Europe.

Again the question here is, what exactly will Olympiacos with yet another inexperienced youngster from the NCAA. Apart from a vast collection of awards and titles the last 4 seasons, perhaps his most notable trait is his shooting ability behind the arc. It's an element that was missing from his game for the first 3 seasons and then all of a sudden in his 4th season he started scoring like a seasoned shooter. Howard averaged 16.4 points 7.7 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 37 games for Butler this past season.
