"My family and I are excited to be part of this club. We are looking forward to experiencing the Italian culture. I had a nice conversation with coach Messina before signing. I have always respected him and the club, and it's been a goal of mine to play at this level," Baron said after penning the deal.

The 31-year-old American guard spent the last two years in Zenit Saint Petersburg. Baron helped Zenit win the VTB United League title for the first time in club history.

He averaged 11.2 points, 1.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 9.9 PIR over 23 EuroLeague games (20 minutes) last season.

Baron ranked 5th in 3-pointers made per game, averaging 2.2 threes in the strongest continental league.

In 88 career EuroLeague contests, Baron has registered 10.6 points while making 40.6% of his three-point shots.

The sharpshooter is the third addition to the newly-shaped Milan's backcourt line, alongside Stefano Tonut and Naz Mitrou-Long.
