Cleveland Cavaliers acquire Agravanis’ NBA rights
The Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired the NBA rights for the Greek international following a trade with the Atlanta Hawks…
Dimitris Agravanis’ NBA rights were acquired by the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night after the Cavaliers dealt Richard Jefferson and Kay Felder to the Atlanta Hawks.
Agravanis, who was drafted by the Hawks with the 59th pick in the 2015 NBA draft, opted to stay in Greece and has continued to develop with the Piraeus giants since joining the club in 2013.
Agravanis signed a three-year extension with Olympiacos this past summer, keeping him with the club until 2020; however, news of his NBA rights being dealt to one of the league’s best teams could pose for an interesting off-season in 2018.
Cleveland, who have reached the last three NBA Finals, are a perennial contender in the league; much thanks to employing one of the league’s best players in Lebron James.
Although Olympiacos are also perennial contenders in their own right on both the domestic scene and of course the EuroLeague, Agravanis could have an interesting dilemma next off-season should the 22-year-old’s NBA rights remain in Cleveland.
