Oleksiy Pecherov signs deal to return to Europe

For the past three seasons, Oleksiy Pecherov tried to find his place in the NBA.

Now his place will be in Milan.

Pecherov has signed a deal to play for Armani Jeans Milano, according to The Hoops Market.

Pecherov played in just 44 games for the Timberwolves last season. Then with the re-signing of Darko Milicic and with Anthony Tolliver signing there, Pecherov was going to remain well down the pecking order at the five if he came back.

This is best for everyone. And living in Milan -- where the temperatures drop only into the high 40s in February and models walk the street of a fashion capital -- may not be so bad compared to Minneapolis in winter.
