Olympiacos is finalizing the addition of Alec Peters and is also targeting Kostas Antetokounmpo and Nick Calathes, according to Eurohoops sources.

The Reds announced the first summer addition to the roster in the form of center Joel Bolomboy earlier Wednesday.

The projected next moves don’t exclude the possibility of Sasha Vezenkov staying rather than potentially moving his talents to the NBA by joining the Sacramento Kings.

Peters, 27, surfaced as a target for the Greek giant last week. The addition of the Valparaiso product to the team coached by Giorgos Bartzokas is being finalized. The former player of the Phoenix Suns spent the previous two seasons at Bitci Baskonia and carries preceding Turkish Airlines EuroLeague experience from the one-year stints at Anadolu Efes and CSKA.

Calathes, 33, has yet to officially finish his spell at FC Barcelona but has been among the multiple players linked to Zenit during the offseason. Coming in hoping to secure his services, Olympiacos has already made an offer for the Greek-American point guard. As a reminder, Calathes has spent most of his professional career playing for archrival Panathinaikos.

Antetokounmpo, 24, is another target for the Reds. The younger brother of Giannis and Thanasis, teammates at the Milwaukee Bucks, is coming off a one-year run at LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne, his first team in Europe. Before landing in France, he had made his way to 21 NBA games between the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks and gained additional professional experience in the G League.
