With Raul Neto on board at Fenerbahce, Nick Calathes is on the way out, according to Eurohoops sources, and two clubs have shown interest: Partizan and, in theory, Olimpia Milano.

At the moment, the Italian champions are not advancing negotiations, as they already have Kevin Pangos under contract, and Calathes is close to an agreement with Partizan.

Last season, the 34-year-old wore the Fenerbahçe Beko jersey in 38 games of the EuroLeague, posting averages of 8.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 4.9 assists. In the regular season of the Turkish Basketball Super League, the experienced guard played in 14 games and averaged 7.9 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 6.4 assists.

The Belgrade club is in need of a point guard since Yam Madar left for Fenerbahce, and Dange Exum signed with the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA.

They have already signed Ognjen Jaramaz and Mateusz Ponitka, while Aleksa Avramovic, Kevin Punter, James Nunnally, Zach LeDay, and Balsa Koprivica have signed contract extensions.
