According to Eurohoops sources, Olympiacos is finalizing a deal with Shaquielle McKissic until 2021, with a team option for the summer of 2020.
McKissic spent part of the 2019-20 season with Besiktas, leading the team to the Basketball Champions League playoffs, though his contract with the Turkish club had an opt-out option. He posted an average of 16.6 points, 4 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 13 BCL games with Besiktas.
While there is still a transfer ban for Olympiacos in place by EuroLeague, the situation is expected to be resolved so the 29-year-old guard/forward can join the Greek team.
With Vassilis Spanoulis and Taylor Rochestie ruled out due to injuries, the Reds might also add another guard apart from McKissic.
