The EuroLeague trophy may be still missing from his collection of silverware, but the experienced slasher has always been capable of delivering the goods whenever required. An injury prevented him from being able to help his former team for the past two years, AEK Athens, in the Greek League playoffs, which provided some consolation to the 2018 Basketball Champions League winners after an underwhelming 2020-21 campaign in all competitions.
