Kostas Papanikolaou made a name for himself in Euroleague with the most spectcular way in 2012 Final Four. When Olympiacos after 15 years returned to the top of Europe with one of the biggest upsets in the history of sports against CSKA Moscow.

One year later he was named the league’s “rising star” and in London he won the second Euroleague title of his career, this time against Real Madrid.

Houston Rockets have his NBA rights and during the season they tried to sign him. His answer was negative. Our question is really simple. When he will go to the NBA?

“Nothing changed in my thoughts about the NBA. If I get a good chance, I will go. However, I am new in this team, they have treated me with respect and I only think about Barcelona. A team that helps me evolve my game and be better. So, I don’t know what will happen, if I will end up in the NBA this summer or the next one.
