The Greek Connection

In examining the Clippers point guard situation for next season, I surmised that the Clippers might be interested in the top point guards currently playing in the EuroLeague, Greek players Theo Papaloukas of CSKA Moscow and Dimitrios Diamantidis of Panathananikos.  Indeed, MDsr was in Athens for the EuroLeague Final Four this week, where the two point guards squared off in the championship game (won by Panathanaikos 93-91). Ian Whittel reports that the Clippers are on the list of teams interested in EuroLeague MVP Papaloukas:  

Although Papaloukas turns 30 Tuesday, his representatives have let it be known that "three or four" NBA teams have expressed a strong interest in the CSKA guard. The Los Angeles Clippers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Dallas Mavericks are said to be on the interested list.

No word on whether Diamantidis is also being courted.
