Following the ABA League Assembly on Friday (24/05), Olympiacos may play only in the EuroLeague next season.
The Assembly decided not to proceed with the requests’ of Olympiacos and Panathinaikos to join the League, as more documents have to be submitted. At the same time, the League does not seem eager to accept the applications of the two Greek giants. An official decision, though, will be made in the next Assembly.
For their part, the “Reds” have already been relegated to the second division, after forfeiting Game 1 of the Greek playoffs against Panathinaikos.
If the ABA League turns down their request, then Olympiacos will only compete in the EuroLeague next season. The club will also create a second roster, which will play in the second division.
This will consist of players of the junior team and players of the senior team, who will not have much playing time.
