American point guard of Panathinaikos BC Mike James will replace his experienced compatriot, K.C. Rivers, in the team's squad in Basket League matches.
The Greens can only use 4 foreign players during the first round of Greek championship, so their Spanish head coach, Xavi Pascual, decided to replace the 29-year-old former athlete of Real Madrid with Mike James, who has finally overcome his serious forearm injury.
Chris Singleton, Demetris Nichols and James Feldeine are the other foreign players until the beginning of second round, in which Panathinaikos BC will have the right to use another two, most likely new signing Alessandro Gentile and one between K.C. Rivers, Kenny Gabriel, since James Gist will remain out of action for a few months.
