Panathinaikos OPAP and Shelvin Mack agreed to extend their contract until the end of the 2020-21 season, as reported by Onsports and confirmed by Eurohoops sources.

Mack, 30, joined the Greens in early November inking a two-month deal. A couple of weeks before the contract ran out, he is set to become a permanent member of the squad.

The American point guard, Butler alumnus, has been averaging 9.1 points, 3.1 assists, 1.4 rebounds, and 1.0 steals per Turkish Airlines EuroLeague game over seven appearances. Panathinaikos is his second stop in Europe’s premier club continental competition following his 2019-20 stint with AX Armani Exchange Olimpia Milano.

Prior to his arrival, Keifer Sykes and Pierre Jackson took on a similar role but did not retain their spot in the team guided by Georgios Vovoras. Mack making a stronger impact will stay in Athens for the rest of the season.

He is currently battling an injury and is considered questionable for the EuroLeague Regular Season Round 16 away game versus Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv scheduled to be held Tuesday.
