A new year brings new signings, with several players making moves as we reach the second half of many seasons around the world. One significant signing this week is of Ricky Ledo, who signed with AEK Athens in Greece for the remainder of the 2023-2024 season. Ledo arrives in Greece having played in three countries during the 2022-2023 season, most recently with Anhui Wenyi in China.
The 31-year-old small forward will play in Greece for the first time in his 11-year career, having spent a significant amount of his career in Turkey and China. He joins an AEK Athens team that is currently in the thick of play not only in the Greek Basket League (sporting a 6-6 record) but in the Basketball Champions League as well. Athens currently sit in first place in their group with a 5-1 record, and have advanced to the knockout stage of the BCL. Ledo will join fellow Americans Langston Hall, Brandon Knight, Jordan McRae and Chasson Randle and Justin Tillman on the squad.
