N.Calathes to Europe

Nick Calathes signed a three year, $6M contract with the greek powerhouse Panathinaikos. Smart or stupid move? What do you guys think?

I'm mad. He was a good prospect and now it is going to be a while before I can watch him play in the NBA, if at all.

Sounds like a good move for

Sounds like a good move for him IMO. I mean that's lottery money, there was little chance he would be drafted in the lottery. It'll be interesting to see if he leaves his name in the draft - if so some excellent team drafting late could be lucky and get the chance to stockpile him.

excellent move

He's 20 right? I think in 2 years, he jets.

he is 6-5 and could do everything. Europe will make him smarter and with his ability, he could be a lottery pick in 2011.

ok move

It was a ok move because it ups the competition level he's going to play against, but with Nick his only weakness is his defense and I highly doubt he's going to be playing against many quick point guards that could help him improve his on ball defense to get him back to the NBA

Good move

Nick is probably better off in Europe -- he's not an NBA level athlete. He can make mad bank in Europe.
