According to Eurohoops’ sources Olympiacos wants to sign Tyrese Rice. He is still under contract with Barcelona, but they are negotiating the termination of his contract for next season.

Rice reportedly has offers from Anadolu Efes and likely Maccabi but Olympiacos seems to be the front-runner to sign him, as the Turkish team inked Errick McCollum and the Israelis announced Pierre Jackson, both signed today.

The American guard averaged 13 points in 30 EuroLeague games with Barcelona during the 2016-17 season.

Apart from Rice, Olympiacos is eyeing on more guard who’s currently playing in the NBA Summer League, yet his name hasn’t been revealed yet.
