Nick Calathes, former starting guard for the Florida Gators, has decided to go pro. He signed recently with a European team in Greece.
Nick's brother, Pat, also plays professionally in Greece, so the opportunity to join his brother abroad was attractive to the younger Calathes. Nick Calathes will earn approximately $2 million a year during his 3-year contract.
Although UF coach Billy Donovan has had difficulty in managing his roster, there won't be many tears shed at his plight-- not at least by those competing against him in the SEC. Donovan is a good coach, and he will still have a number of talented players to put on the floor when the season starts.
