Nick Calathes is turning pro… Panathinaikos

Nick Calathes, if you don’t know, is the talented Florida Gator sophomore PG who has been tagged as a late 1st round draft pick by many teams. However, he made news today by announcing he would play with the Greek League team, Panathinaikos for at least the next 2 seasons.

What does this to do to the NBA Draft? It hurts it from an immediacy standpoint as players are dropping out who have 1st round potential. It also means, if you’re a Kings fan, that this weakens the pool at 23 potentially if the Kings aren’t waiting for a player like Calathes to come over to play in the NBA.

More on this later. H/T to coachtheus of Sactown Royalty for finding this.
