Linas Kleiza could be leaving Europe after a successful individual season in Olympiacos. 25-year-old Lithuanian forward received an offer from Toronto Raptors, Yahoo Sports reports. He was offered a four-year contract worth $20 million by NBA’s most Europeanized club.
A member of Lithuanian national team averaged 17.1 points and 6.5 rebounds per game for Olympiacos last season in Euroleague. Kleiza helped his team reach Euroleague final, Greek league final and lift the Greek Cup.
Before joining Olympiacos Linas Kleiza spent three seasons in NBA with Denver Nuggets. His former club has also made an offer which is significantly lower than the one of the Raptors.
Olympiacos wouldn’t mind to get rid of the large Kleiza’s contract.
