The Greek center is fed up playing in Greek A1 (in addition to being unpaid for months, the recent PAOK-Olympiacos game was interrupted for more than two hours because PAOK fans were throwing objects in the court) and is looking for a way out.
According to Malaga Hoy, Lazaros Papadopoulos has a relatively small contract with PAOK worth 150.000 euros in exchange for a free release in case he had an offer from a Euroleague club.
The ACB club has been interested in the player since summer, but with a tough Euroleague Top16 group there is a greater necessity for a presence in the paint. Papadopoulos has not been successful in his first try at ACB, but he is hoping to get a second chance to prove himself.
