Pekovic Update (11/19)

New, comments

Wolves 2nd Round draft pick Nikola Pekovic seems to be fitting in well with his new club, 2007 Euroleague champs Panathinaikos, after signing a three-year, $5 - 5.7 million deal.

Panathinaikos is 3-1 in Euroleague action with six more games to go. Pekovic has only had one start:

MPG FG% FT% PPG OREB DREB RPG APG SPG BPG FPG
18.7 56.3% 65.4% 13.3 1.3 1.3 2.5 1.0 0.3 1.3 3.0

After six Greek A-1 League games the squad is in (tied for?) 4th place with 5 wins (the season is 26 games long and goes until April 09). Pekovic is 10th in scoring and doing just as well from the field as he is from the line:

MPG FG% FT% PPG OREB DREB RPG APG SPG BPG FPG
16.2 74.2% 75.0% 13.7 1.8 2.3 4.2 0.7 0.2 0.5 4.0

Pekovic's teammates include former NBAers Sarunas Jasikevicius, Vassilis Spanoulis, Antonis Fotsis, and Mike Batiste and former Maryland Terp Drew-Lawrence Nichols.

Lastly, he his MP3 player is apparently full of "Serbian municipal songs." It annoys the locker room, but not so much that they don't miss him at Partizan.
