Former Gonzaga point guard Nigel Williams-Goss appears to be in line for a huge pay raise.

Williams-Goss agreed to a three-year contract with Olympiacos for more than $2 million, according to Sportando. Eurohoops.net reported the same dollar figures but said the ex-Zags player and the Greek team were finalizing the deal.

Williams-Goss spent his first professional season with KK Partizan in Belgrade, Serbia. Former Zag Kyle Wiltjer played for Olympiacos last season, along with Kim Tillie, brother of Gonzaga junior forward Killian Tillie.

Former Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt was hired recently as Olympiacos’ head coach.

Williams-Goss had a strong season with Partizan, averaging 17 points and 6.3 assists during the EuroCup and 16.9 points and 6.9 assists in the ABA League. In 43 games, he made nearly 49 percent of his 3-point attempts and 89.6 percent of his free throws.

Williams-Goss, who helped Gonzaga (37-2) reach the 2017 NCAA title game, bypassed his senior season to enter the NBA Draft. He was selected by Utah with the 55th pick. The 6-foot-3 point guard played with the organization’s summer league team before signing overseas.
