DENVER (AP) - Restricted free agent forward Linas Kleiza of the Denver Nuggets is taking his game to Europe.

Nuggets executive Mark Warkentien says Kleiza has chosen to play
for Olympiakos, agreeing to a two-year deal worth more than $12
million.

Warkentien said Kleiza's agent, Bill Duffy, informed him of the signing Monday. Duffy was flying back from Europe and unavailable for comment.

Kleiza was extended a qualifying offer by the Nuggets in June, making the backup player a restricted free agent and guaranteeing him a $2.7 million salary this season.

The Nuggets retain Kleiza's NBA rights.
