Kostas Papanikolaou is back to Olympiacos roster, he is leaving the NBA and the return to a Euroleague contender was his wish. As he said: “It’s true that I wanted to return and I am happy that everything went well”.

After all, Papanikolaou won the Euroleague twice as a member of the Greek champions and he is ready for more: “I can’t wait to see again Spanoulis, Printezis and Mantzaris and the members of the coaching stuff. We have a lot of memories bingind us. On my 1,5 year in the NBA I was following Olympiacos and I am happy to be a part of the team again. Since I was released from the Nuggets, I practiced individually. It’s not the same like practicing with a team, but I am ready to play under coach Sfairopoulos. It’s not time for words, but for action”.
