Rockets, Spanoulis agree to 3-year deal

Rockets, Spanoulis agree to 3-year deal

By JONATHAN FEIGEN
Copyright 2006 Houston Chronicle

The Rockets reached agreement with guard Vassillis Spanoulis on a three-year contract worth more than $5 million, the largest initial contract they had ever offered a second-round pick.

Spanoulis told Athens newspaper Eleftheros Typos that he would officially accept the contract offer sometime today or tomorrow Houston time.

The Rockets acquired the rights to Spanoulis in an exchange of second-round picks during the 2004 Draft. He played well enough for Maroussi Honda to move to Greek league power Panathanaikos last season and helped lead that team to the Greek league championship.

A member of the Greek Olympic team in 2004 Spanoulis, a 6-3 1/2-inch combination guard, is training with the Greek team for the World Championships and will not be in Houston until September.

Sure is. All you have to do is use a nice chunk of your MLE on someone with no NBA experience.

cept for the three-year part of it, it sounds
pretty much like LLE-type money.

I think the Rockets used their LLE on Derek Anderson last year.
