After that “KPap” travelled to Ottawa Canada, in order to get his working visa and is expected back at Houston until Friday. Papanikolaou started practicing with Houston Rockets. His coach, Kevin McHale and the other team staff at start gave him a special training program so he can be 100% ready for training camp opening in September 30. That happened because Papanikolaou had a full summer with Greece NT which could lead him to overwork and exhaustion.
