Though apparently nothing official is in place, Marcus Haislip appears to be heading for Panathinaikos just days after getting waived by the San Antonio Spurs.
The Associated Press reports that the acquisition was publicly announced at the Kolossos Rhodes game yesterday (a blowout 92-60 win by PAO, incidentally), but no official from the Euroleague, Greek national league or Panathinaikos itself appears to have confirmed the addition of Haislip.

The former no. 13 overall pick by the Milwaukee Bucks has bounced back and forth over the puddle since the 2002 draft, having logged time in Turkey with Ulkerspor (with whom he was the TBL slam dunk contest champion in 2005) and Efes Pilsen, and in the ACB with Unicaja Malaga. Haislip’s latest foray into the NBA ended with the Spurs after seeing action in only 10 games.
