Milos Vujanic - Panathinaikos Panathinaikos kept busy on Wednesday with its third contract in as many days, extending the stay of Milos Vujanic for another season. Vujanic's (190, 27) extension comes on the heels of Mike Batiste's new deal, while Kennedy Winston inked a two-year deal with the Greens on Tuesday. The Serbian guard, a former Euroleague scoring champ, averaged 5.6 points in 19 Euroleague games last season, helping Panathinaikos to a historic triple crown – Euroleague title, Greek Cup and Greek championship.

Vujanic grew up with Red Star Belgrade and then played for Partizan Belgrade, Fortitudo Bologna and Barcelona before joining Panathinaikos. He has a pair of Yugoslavian championships, an Italian League title and a gold medal at the 2002 World Championships all under his belt. Vujanic joins Batiste and backcourt mate Nikos Hatzivrettas as Panathinaikos players who have signed contract extensions this off-season.
