The 32-year-old guard joined the team's practices in August and has been part of the club's training sessions since.

The Greek veteran is set to finish his playing career with the club, as George Zakkas of previously reported.

The former Greek international, who made his only appearance in a big tournament in the FIBA EuroBasket 2017, left PAO in the summer of 2020, following a seven-year stint that included five Greek championship titles, five Greek Cups, and two serious ACL injuries that kept him sidelined for almost 18 months.

Since 2020, Pappas has played with three teams in Israel, Poland, and Greece. He tore his Achilles tendon while playing for Zielona Gora in 2020.
