Peja Stojakovic Not Leaving for Greece

Marc Stein reports that Panathinaikos is going after a star. Guess that takes Stojakovic out of the picture: “I spoke Wednesday with a source quite close to Stojakovic. And the message was clear: There has been zero discussion in Peja’s camp about him leaving the Hornets and returning to Greece, where he played for a few seasons before making his NBA debut with Sacramento in the lockout-shortened 1999 season. The speculation emanates from recent Greek media reports asserting that Panathinaikos is close to landing ‘an important NBA star.’ Peja’s history there led to some inevitable but baseless assumptions.”
