After four seasons in UC Irvine, the 23 years old big man will sign his first professional contract in a club that has a tradition of polishing talented young players.

Giannis Dimakopoulos was a member of the junior Greek national teams and despite being a 7-footer he averaged 10.9 points last season while shooting 35% in threes.

The player is already in Serbia, he had a tryout and when he clears the medical exams, he is expected to sign his contract.
