Florida’s Calathes Chooses Europe

by May 26, 2009

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.”
