Giorgos Printezis officially signed his new contract with Euroleague champions Olympiacos for three years and 2,7 million euros, as it was first reported by Eurohoops.net. As it was also reported by Turkish media, he refused to take the 4,5 million dollars for three years offer of Fenerbahce/ Ulker. What is not known, thought, is that the Knicks also made an official offer to the Greek forward, like they have said they would do, after the Euroleague final four.
New York – having already signed James White from Scavolini Pesaro and adding to its roster veteran Argentinian point guard Pablo Prigioni – three days ago offered to Giorgos Printezis a one year contract that would pay him something more than the minimum and asked him to move to the NBA. Printezis was already in advanced negotiations with Olympiacos, the offer of Fener was still on the table and he hadn’t made up his mind. He had the chance to play in the NBA, but he finally denied it and choose to stay at Olympiacos until the summer of 2015.
