Olympiakos basketball club…

Olympiakos basketball club yesterday announced it had signed forward Jeff Norgaard. The team’s coach Jonas Kazlauskas had been looking for a strong inside player, preferably a center or a power forward, but had to settle on 2-meter (6′ 7») Norgaard, who mostly plays small forward but is also a good rebounder. Norgaard was drafted in 1996 by the Milwaukee Bucks but never played in the NBA. He has become a Polish citizen.
