Florida’s Calathes Chooses Europe

Well, we can officially remove Calathes’ name from the SLAMonline Mock Draft board. The former Gator point guard will play for Euroleague champs, Panathinaikos, earning $1.1 million with a car and a house: “With his Greek heritage and dual citizenship, Calathes figures to be a popular figure in Athens. In addition to joining arguably the world’s most elite overseas franchise, there should be endorsement opportunities aplenty, and the built-in honor to represent his country in international competition. Last summer, he played for the Greek National Team during the FIBA Europe Under-20 championships.”
