Panathinaikos Athens made another investment in the future by announcing multi-year agreement with big man Georgios Papagiannis on Wednesday. Papagiannis (2.17 meters, 16 years old) is one of the greatest prospects in the world, who made history in 2012 by becoming the youngest player ever to play in the Greek League's top flight. The center was 14 years and 6 months old when he made his senior team debut for Peristeri, against his new team Panathinaikos. The deal with Papagiannis comes only two days after another promising teenager, point guard Michalis Lountzis, signed his five-year contract with the Greens.
