According to the club's official announcement, Nate Wolters joins the team on a one-year deal to compliment Paris Lee and Marius Grigonis in the backcourt.

"Panathinaikos is a great team with a huge tradition in European basketball," the newly-acquired player said following the signing. "It's a great environment to compete in and Athens is a great city to live in. I can't wait to come and start working with my new teammates and my coach."

The experienced EuroLeague guard will rejoin head coach Dejan Radonjic after a successful season in Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade. Wolters orchestrated Radonjic's offense on their way to celebrating Adriatic League and Serbian Cup titles over main rivals Partizan NIS Belgrade.

"Coach Radonic has my unlimited respect," Wolters said about the reunion with the coach. "He is a very good coach who knows how to get 100% from his players and to fight hard, all together as a team. I believe we will do very well."

Wolters became the MVP of the Serbian Cup finals, boosting Crvena Zvezda to a victory with 14 points, four rebounds, and four assists.

The American guard averaged 10.9 points (2FG: 55.3%; 3FG: 35.9%), 2.6 rebounds, and 3.6 assists in 31 EuroLeague appearances.

It will be the third time Radonjic signs Wolters. The player was already a floor general of his team in the 2016-17 season.
