In the 2023-24 season, despite not making it to the EuroLeague Playoffs, the 30-year-old forward put up 10.2 points and 4.6 rebounds per game in the EuroLeague. In the ABA League, where they eventually lost in the Finals to Crvena Zvezda, he had 12.3 points and 5.2 boards per encounter.

Joining the Italian team ahead of the 2020-21 season, he was one of the main protagonists of Ettore Messina’s team trajectory to the EuroLeague Final Four in Cologne, where Milan ended in 3rd position.
