Panellinios has announced the signing of point guard Manolis Papamakarios to a two-year contract. Papamakarios (190, 28) arrives from Olympiacos Piraeus. He grew up with Peristeri, where he played from 1998 until 2004. He then moved to Makedonikos and helped the team to reach the 2005 ULEB Cup Final, losing to Lietuvos Rytas. He averaged 10.5 points 2 assists and 1.8 steals per game that year. In the summer of 2005, Papamakarios joined the Reds and spent three years there, but from season to season he saw his numbers drop. Last season he averaged only 1.1 points per game in 13 Euroleague appearances and 3.5 points per game in the Greek League.
