Pat Calathes (Photo: St. Joseph’s University) Maroussi Costa Coffee signed rookie forward Pat Calathes to a three-year contract, the club announced Friday. Calathes (208, 22) arrives from St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia, USA, where he was named to the Atlantic 10 All-Conference First Team and the 2007-08 Big 5 Co-Player of the Year last season. He was the team's leader in points (17.5 ppg.), rebounds (7.5 rpg.), blocks (1.2 bpg.) and three-point field goals (74), while second in assists (2.7 apg.) and third in steals. Calathes has the shooting and passing skills to go outside, but the size and rebounding abilities to play in the paint, making him an intriguing prospect for Maroussi.
