The rumor in Europe is that the Toronto Raptors have been scouting Vassilis Spanoulis, even having senior level team officials personally attend his games in Europe.
The rumor is that the Raptors plan to pursue Spanoulis in the summer of 2013, as he is currently in the last year of his contract with the Euroleague club Olympiacos Piraeus. The Raptors, according to the rumors, supposedly would like Spanoulis to replace Jose Calderon.
Spanoulis, a point guard, is largely considered to be the best player on the European continent. He is one of only four players in history to win multiple Euroleague Final Four MVP awards, which is the most prestigious individual award in European basketball.
