NWG will be playing for one of the most successful clubs in Europe

Sportnado reports former Gonzaga All-American Nigel Williams-Goss has agreed to a three-year deal with Olympiacos B.C. of the Greek Basketball League. According to Eurohoops.net, the Greek club and Williams-Goss have agreed to contract length but are still negotiating the salary. Williams-Goss previous turned down a two-year offer from Lithuanian club Zalgiris, who were looking to replace Kevin Pangos, their point guard for the two prior seasons.

If the name Olympiacos sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the club that signed Kyle Wiltjer last season after he was waived by the Toronto Raptors. Wiltjer filled a slot on the team that opened up after Kim Tillie was injured and out for the season. Kim Tillie is the older brother of Killian Tillie.

Olympiacos is also a member of the Euroleague, a European-wide competition of top-tier level basketball clubs. Olympiacos has three Euroleague Championships, has been the runner-up five times and reached the Final Four on 10 occasions. Olympiacos has a new coach for the upcoming season, David Blatt, a famous Israeli-American coach who’s had great success in Europe and was once a star point guard for Princeton University.
