Only few hours after announcing the signings of Nikola Pekovic and Antonis Fotsis, Panathinaikos added another star to its lineup with the signing of guard Drew Nicholas for two seasons. Nicholas (193, 27), the 2006 Euroleague Basketball Alphonso Ford Top Scorer Trophy winner, arrives from Efes Pilsen, where he averaged 16.5 points and 2.9 assists in 14 Euroleague games last season. He has spent his entire professional career in Europe after an impressive college basketball career at the University of Maryland, where he helped the Terrapins lift the 2002 NCAA title. Nicholas started in Italy suiting up for Fabriano Basket and then Basket Livorno, leading the Italian League in scoring in each season with 27.1 and 22.8 points per game, respectively. He finished the 2004-05 season with Tau Ceramica in Spain and then came back to Italy for the 2005-06 season, signed by Benetton Treviso. At Benetton, Nicholas was the Euroleague's top scorer with 20.4 points per game and won the Italian championship. He moved to Efes Pilsen in the summer of 2006 and helped the team win the 2007 Turkish Cup.
