Eric Buckner will be playing in Greece next season. The big man signed with Aris Thessaloniki after spending last season in Turkey with Turk Telekom.
The Georgia State grad, who has the most blocks all-time in Panthers history (167, despite only playing there for two years), has played his entire career in Turkey up to this point, suiting up for Usak Sportif, Istanbul BSB and Turk Telekom before signing with Aris and heading to Greece. The center brings scoring and rebounding to every club he plays on, averaging 10.3 ppg and 6.3 rpg for Turk Telekom last season.
Aris Thessaloniki went 20-6 last season in Greece's top division, advancing to the semifinal round before falling short to Panathinaikos, 3-2.
