Crvena Zvezda mts is close to an agreement with New York-born Hassan Martin, as reported by Serbian outlet Mozzart Sport.

Martin, 26, has been playing for Olympiacos for the last couple of years. At the conclusion of his two-year contract, he emerged into the free-agent market, while incoming Alec Peters is considered his probable replacement. Meanwhile, Crvena Zvezda reached out in an attempt to secure his services and is nearing a deal, as noted in the latest update on his status.

The former Rhode Island standout tipped off his professional career by heading to Japan in 2017. One year later, he was landed by German team medi Bayreuth and spent the 2019-20 season at Montenegro’s Buducnost VOLI before joining the Reds. Recording 55 appearances in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, he posted 7.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 0.5 blocks, 0.5 steals, and 0.3 assists per contest introducing himself to the top-tier club continental competition of Europe.

The Olympiacos stint included a couple of domestic titles, the Stoiximan Basket League championship and the Greek Cup in 2022, along with a berth in the EuroLeague Final Four. In 2020, he won the Montenegro Cup with Buducnost.

The Belgrade giant previously picked up Nemanja Nedovic from Greece. Coming in from Panathinaikos OPAP, the explosive guard penned a three-year contract to return to his first professional team. More moves, possibly including Martin, will help further shape the roster heading to the 2022-23 editions of EuroLeague, the regional AdmiralBet ABA League, and domestic competitions in Serbia.
