Sofoklis Schortsanitis fled to the USA to negotiate contract terms with the Los Angeles Clippers and most likely to make a move to the NBA. Accounting for that is the fact that the Greek national team centre is being accompanied by his personal trainer to ensure his best physical condition. Moreover, Sofo will also be shown some houses, one of those possibly being his in a very near future.
Selected by the Clippers in the 2003 NBA draft, Schortsanitis was the MVP of last season's Greek All-Star game and had a season of recovery from overweight and shape-wise. In Olympiacos for the last four years, he averaged 7.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in the Euroleague last season. He previously played for Aris, Cantù and Iraklis.
