Greek forward Kostas Papanikolaou is set to be released by Denver Nuggets, according to reports from the US.
It is believed that Nuggets have decided not to keep Papanikolaou in their squad and therefore his dream at the NBA may be over.
The Greek ace wanted to remain in the USA, however his return to Europe now seems to be the most likely scenario.
Papanikolaou has been linked with a return to Olympiakos in the past, however at the time being the Greek giants have not held any talks.
However, it is believed that Olympiakos are monitoring his situation with interest as they are weighing up their options.
