-  STRETCH PF ANTONIS FOTSIS NOW FREE AGENT CAN HELP NBA TEAMS

The NBA of today does not feed the GREAT post moves of some of the Bigs that can

score in the paint, like PF-Center Donatas Motiejunas, the NBA of today now would rather

go for three points than go down low for just two points. Donatas Motiejunas and others

like Jahlil Okafor and Al Jefferson are just out of luck playing in 2017 rather than 1997, when

those low post moves could have been seen by NBA fans.   NBA teams now use the PF spot, as a stretch

PF spot and one of the best stretch PF players in Europe the past decade was Greek PF Antonis Fotsis,

who recently parted ways with Panathinaikos, but EJBB still thinks the 36 year old Fotsis could help

NBA teams who need shooting from the 3 point stripe.

Antonis Fotsis played one NBA season with the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2001-02 NBA season, but his

skills were not used in the NBA of the past, like they would be used today by NBA teams, Fotsis had a

21 point game for Memphis, but went back to Europe, as he saw Memphis was playing Stromile Swift

and Lorenzen Wright at the PF spot and the great stroke that Fotsis had from deep was better used in

Europe.

Fotsis was part of the Greek national team in 2006 that last beat team USA with Coach K and LeBron James

and Fotsis won Three Euroleague titles with Panathinaikos and could help NBA playoff teams with all of

the Big games he played in Europe.    Kyle Korver is 37 years old and with the NBA of today jacking up deep

shots at a record clip, Korver got a 3 year deal from the Cavs, so EJBB says Fotsis a shooting legend in

Europe at 36 years old is worth a shot at a one or two year deal to stroke deep shots in the NBA, it will not

be the Fotsis of the past that blocked a D Wade shot for the Greek national team in 2004 at the Athens

Olympics or the high flying Fotsis of the past who grabbed Lob Dunks and blocked shots like Andrei Kirilenko, but

Fotsis can still stroke the deep 3 point shot and still moves well for a 36 year old big.

Former teammate of Fotsis is Mike Batiste, who is now an assistant coach with the Charlotte Hornets and it

would be nice to see Fotsis and Bastiste reunite in the NBA in Charlotte.
