    Good spotting Bendit, Seth Curry also played on that team, and they went on to beat Greece in the final of the 2009 under 19
    World championship in a very entertaining game.
    I've been following Nikos last couple of years in the Greek league, and he seems to bring a lot of intangibles that don't translate well on the stat sheet. He plays with a lot of heart and a chip on his shoulder, he is not afraid of contact, and will take the ball to the rim for the foul, or, the and-one. He can create his own shot, and has the ability to control a game with great court-vision and smarts. Reminds me of Ginobilli/Garbajosa, definitely the anti- Bellinelli/Kapono.

    I'm not saying the Raps should sign him to a multi-year, multi-million dollar offer, but just bring him in for a look come training camp.

    Just one...Gordon Hayward. Not sure what you mean...I am sure the Greek and USA teams of various age groups have played each other many times...as they do against many other countries. Is that some kind of qualification? Roko Ukic looked good on tape too. Scouting is pretty good these days. All I can say is if he was a nugget some team in the NBA would have sniffed him out (Spurs?).

    Sorry but he just doesn't jump off the material I have seen on him....along with his defense rating and 26% 3pt shooting.

    Doesn't Niko have a cousin who runs a taxi service in Liberty City?

    Why is he money in the bank? Took a quick look at his draftexp profile and it says he cant get to the rim very well due to physical limitations but he would be fine for the Euro league. Do you disagree?

    Nikos Pappas

    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.
