As Eurohoops reported a few days prior, the player’s side has accepted Panathinaikos’ offer.

The deal between the Greek/American center and the team has been finalized and announced by Panathiniakos. Auguste already has a Greek passport and is expected to reinforce the core of the team.

He is also expected to play in the NBA Summer Leagues in Las Vegas and Orlando, with Miami Heat.

The 23-year-old big man spent the 2016-17 season with Usak in Turkey and averaged 13.4 points and 8.8 rebounds per game.
