ImageOlympiacos was seriously interested in NY Knicks NBA star Nate Robinson offering him a two year contract worth a total of $9 millions (and not $10 millions per year that the "New York Post" reported) but the Piraeus club has decided to drop this case and instead focus on Terrell McIntyre of Montepaschi Siena.

The main reason behind Olympiacos' withdrawal from Robinson's case is the player's unwilingness to come to Greece and instead him using Olympiacos to pressure New York Knicks and other NBA clubs to offer him better contracts.

With the two out of three non-European players spots already taken by Josh Childress and Tomas Kelati and Olympiacos' decision not to go after a big guy after all, the #1 choice for the point guard position automatically becomes Terrell McIntyre.

Although the player himself would like to play in Greece next season, his club Montepaschi Siena requires a huge buy-out, a decisive fact that could sink the on-going negotiations between the two clubs.
