Recommended Posts

This came off the Seattle press...

Seattle is my favorate team in the NBA and they are at a "rebuilding phase" This will be great training, practice, and experience for this kid..

*****************************************************************

SEATTLE - Seattle SuperSonics General Manager Rick Sund announced today that the Sonics have signed free-agent center Andreas Glyniadakis (GLEEN-ya-DAH-kiss). The 7-1 native of Greece has played professionally in both the United States and Europe, including a stint with the Atlanta Hawks this preseason. To make room on the roster, the Sonics requested waivers on guard Kareem Rush.

Glyniadakis signed with Atlanta on Sept. 29 and appeared in five preseason games for the Hawks, averaging 3.2 ppg, 1.6 rpg and 7.4 mpg. Glyniadakis split time last season between Roanoke and Albuquerque of the NBA Development League and averaged 10.5 ppg, 4.8 rpg and 1.3 bpg (.535 FG%, .816 FT%) in 39 games (22 starts). He tallied 21 points and nine rebounds in the D-League Championship game as Albuquerque held off Fort Worth to win the title.

The former Pistons draft pick (58th overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft) played in training camp and preseason with Detroit in 2005. He played professionally in Greece from 1998-2005

The Big G-Man got waived yesterday.

The Associated Press

SEATTLE – The SuperSonics waived guard Desmon Farmer and center Andreas Glyniadakis on Thursday, just days before their contracts would have become guaranteed.

Farmer was signed at the start of training camp, but played in only eight games, averaging 1.6 points. Glyniadakis was signed on Nov. 5 after the Sonics lost center Robert Swift for the season to a knee injury.

Glyniadakis played in 13 games and briefly was Bob Hill's starting center against teams with big frontcourts. But Glyniadakis averaged just 1.3 points and less than a rebound per game and played just nine minutes in Seattle's last seven games.

All contracts become guaranteed on Jan. 10.
