Greek teams were not expected to be big players in the “grab an NBA player during the lockout” game because, well, their country’s economy is so bad it’s sucking half of Europe into the seventh level of hell with it.
But at least one team is making a run.
According to TalkBasket.net (who got it from a Greek sports site), PAOK has made an offer to Corey Maggette. No word on if the Bucks swingman and and-one specialist plans to take them up on their offer. He would need to have an opt-out in the deal as he has two years and $21 million left on his contract.
The report also stats that if PAOK doesn’t get Maggette they have a couple other NBA players in mind. PAOK is one of the bigger names in Greek hoops and guys like Peja Stojakovic, Rasho Nesterovic and even current Bucks head coach Scott Skiles have played for them.
