Oded Kattash’s future with Panathinaikos seems uncertain, as the Greens are moving on from the Israeli coach to explore other options.

Kattash arrived in Panathinaikos mid-season, penning a one-and-a-half-year deal, valid through the summer of 2022, with an option for this offseason. At this moment, there’s no active binding contract between the two sides.

According to Eurohoops sources, as of right now, the chances of Panathinaikos parting ways with the 47-year-old coach are more likely than activating the option on his contract.

The club is scanning the market and examining the options, while UNICS Kazan Dimitris Priftis remains on Panathinaikos’ radar, although his current contract with the Russian club complicates a possible move.

Priftis’ contract with UNICS includes a two-way option (team and coach) and according to Eurohoops’ sources, there have been talks for more favorable financial terms on his contract, as a result of UNICS’ success this season. In order for the Greek coach to move on from the team, this buy-out has to be covered.
