Oleksiy Pecherov Trades In His NBA Uniform For Armani Jeans

08.16.10 7 years ago

Two weeks ago, I had Oleksiy Pecherov on my list of Top 5 NBA Free Agents Under 25 Years Old. Well, it appears at least one team in Europe read that list as well. According to The Hoops Market, the 24-year-old Ukrainian is headed to play for Olimpia Armani Jeans Milano in Italy after playing in the NBA for the last three years with the Wizards and Timberwolves. In case his new teammates want to know how to spell his name, watch the video below.

What do you think? Could Pecherov have stuck around in the NBA?
