BallinEurope favorite Sofoklis Schortsanitis may soon be getting another chance to stick with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Greece-based Sport Net and fellow ESPN TrueHoop Networker the ClipperBlog.
Sofoklis will be heading to Los Angeles “in the next few days” to discuss contract terms. Clippers management is apparently emphatic about putting “Baby Shaq” through the paces: “…we intend to [play] him in the Summer League in Las Vegas if we secure his signature” on a new contract (“…Του προσφέρουν μάλιστα εγγυημένο συμβόλαιο δυο ετών, με οψιόν ανανέωσης για ακόμη ένα.”).
Sport Net went on to report that the Olympiacos front office is attempting to form a new contract with Schortsanitis, whose current deal with the Reds expires this month.
Schortsanitis was selected by the Clippers in the second round of the 2003 NBA Draft. He played with the team in preseason games in October last year before returning to Olympiacos in an option year.
