Olympiacos targetting Boykins – Mbenga?
According to sentragoal.gr, Olympiacos are examining the case of NBA-veteran Earl Boykins.
With the cases of Zabian Dowdell and Akin Akingbala dead in the water Olympiacos are looking for other options, especially that of 35-year old Earl Boykins.
Boykins boasts a long career in the NBA with overall averages like 8.9 points and 3.2 assists, while he also has European experience, as he competed for Virtus Bologna in 2008-2009.
As far as the replacement of sidelined Lazaros Papadopoulos is concerned, the only case right now is that of 31-year old DJ Mbenga, as Nancy seems to be baking down and not letting Akin Akingbala go.
Mbenga spent the last seven years in the NBA, most recently with the New Orleans Hornets.
