Born in Athens, Greece, he can play at both the point guard and shooting guard positions.

Professional career[edit]

Born in Athens in 1978, Gagaloudis started his career with Paleo Faliro.[2] In 1999, he moved to the Greek top-tier level GBL team Dafni, where he stayed for two seasons.[2] Gagaloudis won the 2003 FIBA EuroCup Challenge with Aris, and a Greek Basket League championship with Panathinaikos, in 2004.

With PAOK, Gagaloudis averaged 12.9 points, 1.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 1.8 steals per game, in the 2nd-tier level European-wide league, the EuroCup, during the 2004–05 season.[3] After 2 years with PAOK, and following contract offers from Italian and Spanish teams, Gagaloudis signed with Greek club AEK Athens, in October 2006.[4] In August 2007, Gagaloudis was the first signing of the Greek club Rethymno, for the club's first season in the Greek Basket League.[5]

In January 2008, he signed with the Italian team Virtus Roma,[6] but he was released a month later, after appearing in only three Italian League games, in which he averaged 4.0 points per game.[7][8] He also played in 2 EuroLeague games with Roma that season.[9] In February 2012, he left Maroussi, due to the club's financial problems. For financial reasons, Gagaloudis then signed with the Cypriot League team Apollon Limassol.[10]

After the conclusion of the season in Cyprus, Gagaloudis signed with the Greek club Kavala, for a second time in his career, in order to play for the team in the Greek League 2012–13 season.[11] In January 2013, he accepted an offer from the Tunisian club Étoile Sportive du Sahel, of the Tunisian Division I League.[12] He helped his team win both the Tunisian League and the Tunisian Cup.[13]

Gagaloudis signed with Livadeia, of the Greek Second Division, in November 2014.[14] He was named the Greek 2nd division's MVP in 2015,[15] as he averaged 21.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 1.8 steals per game during the season.[16] In June 2015, he renewed his contract with Livadeia, for the next season.[17] Gagaloudis was the leading scorer of the Greek 2nd-tier league,[18] and he led his team in scoring, assists, steals, and three-pointers made, as he averaged 22.6 points, 3.4 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and 1.9 steals per game.[19] Despite his good performance, Gagaloudis' contract was terminated by mutual consent, on 18 April 2016.[20][21] According to a Greek sports website, his contract was terminated because Gagaloudis had congratulated his opponent, Georgios Apostolidis, for his scoring a buzzer-beating game-winner against Gagaloudis' team, Livadeia.[22]

On 19 July 2016, Gagaloudis signed with Iraklis Thessaloniki of the Greek A2 League (Greek 2nd division).[23]
