Olympiacos’ star forward Sasha Vezenkov will meet with the Sacramento Kings during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas (July 7-17).
The Kings recently acquired Vezenkov’s rights from the Cleveland Cavaliers and seem inclined to sign him. The question remains if this will happen this summer or in the summer of 2023.
For his part, the 26-year-old forward recently revealed his intention to speak with the franchise and explore the possibility of moving to the NBA.
‼️ The @SacramentoKings have invited #SashaVezenkov from @olympiacosbc to the Las Vegas Summer League to interview him and presumably make him an offer.

Sasha Vezenkov is under contract with Olympiacos until 2024, which includes NBA opt-out clauses, worth $750M. This summer, the opt-out clause will expire on July 20.
Vezenkov was one of the best Olympiacos’ players last season, averaging 13.7 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.5 assists in the EuroLeague and leading the “Reds” to the Final Four.
The Greek giants also claimed the Greek League and the Greek Cup, ending the season in the best way possible.
