Via an official press release, Panathinaikos addressed the situation regarding the contract of guard Marcus Denmon.
Here is what the chairman of the club, Manos Papadopoulos said:
“Marcus Denmon did not opt-out from his contract with Panathinaikos OPAP, therefore he is a member of our team.
If there are any disagreements or differences of opinion in such a clear issue, FIBA always provides the way towards a solution.
It is the athlete’s undeniable right to seek his release from any team, provided of course that he negotiates and agrees with his team.
Panathinaikos never before wanted to keep any athlete that does not want to be part of the team.”
On Monday, the “Greens” announced the return of Denmon to the team. However, a few minutes later, both the player himself and his agent, Misko Raznatovic, denied that there is any agreement between Denmon and Panathinaikos.
