Olimpia Milano has successfully extended Kyle Hines’ contract, ensuring that the EuroLeague legend will continue competing in the top continental competition. The Italian club announced the agreement, securing the experienced center until 2024.

Olimpia’s general manager, Christos Stavropoulos, emphasized Hines’ importance to the team, stating, “Kyle is an important part of our family, a person who has allowed us to build the moral and technical foundations of our team. Those values are meaningful beyond any win.”
At 36 years old, Hines became the fourth player in Olimpia’s history to exceed 100 EuroLeague appearances. Furthermore, he holds the record for the most two-point field goals made by a player in the club’s EuroLeague history.
Expressing his enthusiasm, Kyle Hines remarked, “During the last few seasons, Milan has been like a second home for me and my family. I am looking forward to returning for one more season and to have the opportunity to make Olimpia fans proud by fighting for more wins and more titles to make this club bigger and bigger.”
