Olympiakos adds Patrick Beverley

Olympiakos added yet another player to their roster and they announced the signing of Patrick Beverley(1.85-PG/SG) via their official website. Beverley signed for 2 seasons with Olympiakos and it might seem a surprising move but he only will be participaring in the Euroleague games of Olympiakos as a safeguard of sorts adding depth to their bench.

He played for 2 seasons for the Arkansas Razorbacks before moving to Europe, where he played for BC Dnipro in the 2nd division in the Ukraine. This might not seem like a smart move but Beverley got all the playing time he wanted and this summer he was drafted at number 42 in the 2nd round by the Los Angeles Lakers. In the Ukraine he averaged 16.7 points 6.9 rebounds 3.6 assists 2.2 steals and 1.3 blocks in 46 games of the UBL.
