According to Aris-affiliated newspaper Athlitika Nea, the latest target of the Greek team is college sharp-shooter Corey Stokes(1.95-SG). It says that Aris and Stokes are in advanced talks and if there is a deal it might even be finalised today. If Stokes signs he will be the 3rd college signing for Aris after Dan Mavraides(1.93-PG/SG) and Sam Muldrow(2.06-PF).
Stokes was one of the top scorers of Villanova for the past 4 seasons and he is mostly known for his shooting ability behind the arc. This past season he shot 89 out of 206 three pointers(43.2%) ranking him 15th in the nation. Stokes' great season with Villanova was marred by an incident that resulted into a bar brawl and that ended up with Stokes being arrested. During the past season he averaged 14.9 points 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in a total of 29 games for the Villanova Wildcats.
