Antonis Koniaris moves to Israel… potentially long term.

Olympiacos Piraeus is loaning guard Antonis Koniaris to Israeli Basketball Champions League team Hapoel Holon. The agreement is for the Greek player to join Holon for a month while there’s an option for the loan to be extended for the rest of the season.

If Koniaris is to stay with Holon for more than a month, then the team must first advance to the next stage of the Basketball Champions League since the player isn’t eligible to compete in the Israeli Winner League. Holon is currently 2-2 in the BCL regular season.

Koniaris has played just five minutes in one EuroLeague game this season, after averagin 13:22 minutes over 24 matches in 2019-2020. Both the player and Olympiacos were looking for an opportunity that would give him some sufficient time on the floor, hence his loan to Holon.

Olympiacos had signed Koniaris to a three-year deal in 2019.
