Linas Kleiza is very close to signing a contract with Olympiacos despite his dream is to continue in NBA. The player confirmed the proposal made by the Greek team.
"Olympiacos showed interest in me. I would like to stay in NBA, but if I have to go back to Europe, why not in Greece?" said the forward.
Also his manager Rada Filipovic, confirmed the talks between the two parts.
"Olympiacos has been on the player for one month. We are close but we did not reach an agreement yet. Reds offered a two year deal with a very high salary. Now they have to do the last step if they want to sign the player. We hope to close the deal soon. Kleiza would like to play for coach Giannakis" added the agent as reported by Greek media.
