American guard Mike James and AX Armani Exchange Milano agreed on a 2+1 deal which is expected to be official soon, according to Eurohoops sources.

After a short stint with the Suns and Pelicans in the NBA, the 27-year-old finished the 2017-18 season with Panathinaikos averaging 16 points and four assists in EuroLeague and helping the team win another Greek League title.

The deal between the two sides was rumored for a long time, but just a few hours ago things were finalized. Mike James became a fan favorite in Panathinaikos and he is expected to be among the leaders of the Italian champions next season, as Milano is trying to build a roster good enough at least for the EuroLeague playoffs.
