Ilisiakos signed Othello Hunter

Ilisiakos hit the jackpot with Othello Hunter!

The poorest team in the A1 league signed a great prospect yesterday. It was announced via the team's official website that Othello Hunter(2.03-PF) will be replacing Mike Benton until the end of the season. This will be Hunter's first pro contract in Europe.

Hunter said that he heard good things about Greece from his ex-teammate Kostas Koufos(2.16-C) who plays for the Utah Jazz. He graduated from Ohio State in 2008 and in the same year he went undrafted but he still signed a contract with the Atlanta Hawks. He didn't get much playing time in Atlanta averaging only 1.6 points and 1.7 rebounds in 7 games.
