Head coach of the Greens Argyris Pedoulakis believes that the 26-year-old former player of KK Zagreb, Hapoel Gilboa Galil, Paffoni Omegna and Kolossos Rodou, who was impressive in this season's Euroleague (10 ppg, 2,6 rpg, 2,7 apg, 0,6 spg) could be the ideal replacement of the legendary captain Dimitris Diamantidis, who ended his glorious playing career a few weeks ago.
The Greek Cup winners are extremely interested in signing him and have already made an official bid for the capture of Mike James, who is clearly intended to wait in order to attract interest from the NBA clubs, but it seems that he will respond to their lucrative offer during the next hours.
Wealthy Galatasaray S.K. are also monitoring the case of the American guard, while his teammate and another transfer target of Panathinaikos as well, Greek international center Giannis Bourousis, finally decided to not continue his career with the turkish club.
Mike James was one of Laboral Kutxa's MVPs against the Greens in Euroleague 2015-16 Quarter Finals, in which the Spaniards won the series by 3-0, averaging 14,7 ppg, 5,7 rpg, 3,7 apg και 1,3 spg in the three matches and playing a huge role in helping his team return to the Final Four for the first time since 2008.
