According to Eurohoops sources, the American center of Olympiacos has been approached one month ago by the Euroleague champions of 2015 and he denied their initial offer. However, Real Madrid is now giving him a two year deal with a total salary of almost $2 million.
Hunter has decided to accept this offer and for the next two years he will play for the “Whites”. The Spanish club considers almost a given that Gustavo Ayon, who is going to be a free agent, will not be re-signed and Hunter, who will play in the Spanish Liga Endesa under Cotonou status, because he has a passport from Liberia, is the ideal replacement.
David Lee, the American agent of Hunter has given all the rights of his players in Europe to Misko Raznatovic and the deal is almost done. Olympiacos has contacted directly Lee, but there’s no offer on the table from them at this point in order to keep the player who is going to be a free agent. The most possible explanation for this move is that Olympiacos already knows what is happening in the talks with Real Madrid and, considering the financial data, they have decided that it would be better to replace him.
