Panathinaikos OPAP keeps going strong in the summer market and is close to a deal with Daryl Macon Jr., according to Eurohoops sources.

Macon, 25, landed in Greece last January. Following his stint with AEK, he is likely to extend his stay in Athens moving to the Greens. New head coach Dimitrios Priftis is looking to throw him in his backcourt options alongside Kendrick Perry and Nemanja Nedovic.

On a reverse path, T.J. Bray is on his way out of Panathinaikos. The American guard was picked up last February but is not part of the plan for the approaching 2021-22 season.

The Greek powerhouse has also bounced back for Okaro White after considering him earlier in the offseason. The American power forward is a candidate to reunite with Priftis, his coach last season at UNICS Kazan.

As for Jehyve Floyd, his contract with Hapoel Gilboa Galil has raised complications since the buyout clause expired last week. He has been projected as the main backup at the center position behind Georgios Papagiannis.

Perry was officially added to the squad earlier Tuesday. Also, Nedovic re-signed, as announced Monday.
