    So he's a wing and would be behind Gay, DeRozan, Ross, Fields, and possibly Anderson on the depth chart in training camp.

    Color me excited...

    I don't understand why but there is almost always an active thread about a "young talent" the Raptors should acquire/take a look at who would be nothing but an end-of-bench or "DNP - Coach's Decision" on this board. In my opinion, we do not need more Kris Joseph talent-type players if we want to move forward.
    It would take about 2 days in training camp for Pappas to be first over all of those players on the depth chart. Sorry, but this guy is far better than any of those players. Anderson played in Europe for years, and even at his prime he was not half as good as Pappas is already.

    Also, Pappas isn't a wing anyway. He's a combo guard.

    Check out the date of the post Hug, July 2012, training camp last summer, prior to the Gay, Fields, Anderson signings. Also, Ross was untested yet as a Raptor. You are right though we are set at the wing position for now.
    We need bigs, and hopefully the Bargniani for Boozer trade rumor happens.

    Yeah, I'm still trying to figure out why this thread even exists. I'll get to it right after I figure out why I'm reading it...

    This guy is money in the bank. Greek 22 year old shooting guard undrafted, with huge upside.
    Currently a free agent, B.C. or Gherardini should definitely take a look, possibly bring him in for training camp.
    Best young player in the Greek league last year and he only played for the last half of the season.

    The word in Greece is that big Euroleague clubs like Panathinaikos, Olympiacos, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Fenerbahce, CSKA, Efes, all want Pappas and will be offering him a lot of money and Panionios a big buyout this summer.

    So, it seems very unlikely that he plays in the NBA next season, although he certainly should get NBA offers. But they probably will offer the rookie minimum, which will be way, way, way less than what those big Euroleague clubs will offer.

    Greek A1 round 15 best performance: Nikos Pappas - Feb 5, 2013

    Nikos Pappas
    Former international guard Nikos Pappas (195-G-90, agency: FCM) had a very impressive game in the last round for Panionios, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 15.
    The 22-year old player was the main contributor (25 points, nine rebounds and four assists) to his team's victory, helping them to crush Peristeri GS (#10, 5-10) with 22-point margin 91-69. Panionios maintains the 3rd position in Greek A1. They are still close to the very top. Panionios would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 12-3 record. In the team's last game Pappas had a remarkable three three-pointers out of 7 attempts. He turned to be Panionios' top player in his first season with the team. Nikos Pappas has solid league stats. He is league's best scorer averaging so far 18.7ppg. Pappas is in league's top in assists (9th best: 3.3apg) and averages impressive 50.8% FGP.

    Raps can't be choosers when it comes to talent. Dude reminds me of Ginobili kinda.

    He looks good. He also looks like a sg. If he was a sf maybe, but I really think the Raps need mature, developed players now. We have too many young kids.

    I am one who is pro trying to mine the Euro leagues for talent. Gherardini has been a disappointment in terms of not coming up with a "Nikos" for the Raptors the last few years. Dont know how much he had to do with the JV pick. I know what you mean about intangibles which is often overlooked.
