Phil Greene IV has signed with Happy Casa Brindisi in Italy for the rest of the season according to Sportando and other sources. Greene joins Brindisi after playing for two other teams this season - Gaziantep Baskebol in Turkey and Trefl Sopot in Poland. In 17 games, Greene averaged 10.5 points and 2.7 assists per game, including putting up 15.9 points per game in the Polish League.
This will be his first time playing in Italy's top division after playing two seasons in the Serie A2 division from 2016-2018. Brindisi currently sits in fourth place in the Serie A standings with an 18-11 record with one game to go in the league's regular season.
As we wind down the regular season in leagues across the world, we've slowed down our Baller of the Week feature. However, a big game from Askia Booker got our attention and we decided to continue with Baller of the Week through the month of May. Booker's team, UCAM Murcia, is fighting off relegation, and his huge performance this week against Baxi Manresa helped spur his team on to victory. Booker scored 40 points to go along with five rebounds and three assists, as well as hitting an incredible nine three-pointers in Murcia's 96-86 victory over sixth-place Manresa. The fifth-year pro has had several big games in the past month and is doing his best to keep his team in Liga Endesa next season, and such a big performance in crunch time made his an easy choice for Baller of the Week.
