EuroLeague Basketball

Panathinaikos have reportedly released Italian Alessandro Gentile, leaving the NBA Draft pick in playing limbo.

Gentile can not sign with another EuroLeague team due to the deadline expiring plus he also can’t sign with an other Italian club, because EA7 Milano will not let him to.

Greek outlet Eurohoops, who have reported the story state that Panathinaikos have not been as happy with Gentile’s performances since he joined the club from EA7 Milano just before Christmas.

Gentile, a second round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft had gone from averaging 20.0 points a game in the 2015-16 season to just 3.2 points in nine games, eight of which he started.
