Greece will have to play without Koufos
By Nick Borges
After having a solid season with the Denver Nuggets, starting center Kosta Koufos has decided to spend the summer in Colorado and Ohio working on his game. As a result, he won't play for Greece during the FIBA EuroBasket 2013 tournament in Slovenia, reports The Denver Post.
Koufos' contract expires in June and he'll enter the market as a restricted free agent after the Nuggets tender him a qualifying offer. Another team may sign him to an offer sheet, however Denver's management has said they plan to match it.
Koufos averaged 8.0 points and 6.9 rebounds this season in 57 games.
