Green inks deal to play in Greece

Indiana’s Devonte Green has signed a contract to play in Greece with Charilaos Trikoupis BC, according to multiple reports.

Flex Basketball Management announced the deal on Twitter, and Eurobasket.com also reported the agreement.

Green, a 6-foot-3 guard from North Babylon, N.Y., finished with 954 points in his IU career. When he was on, Green was prolific from behind the 3-point line, climbing to 12th on the Hoosiers’ all-time list with 164 makes from deep.

As a senior, Green was co-captains with backcourt mate Al Durham and was the team’s second-leading scorer at 10.8 points per game. Coming off the bench in 22 of 29 games, he hit 35.8 percent from deep and 36.5 percent overall in 2019-20.

Charilaos Trikoupis BC is a “newly promoted” squad from the Greek Basket League’s A2 Division. It will play in the A1 ranks this coming season. Green will be one of a handful of Americans on the roster, according to Eurobasket, teaming with guards Anthony Mathis (formerly of Oregon) and Ty Cockfield (Arkansas State).

A couple of months after the Hoosiers’ season was ended by the pandemic, Green signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation sports agency. His older brother, Danny, plays in the NBA for the Lakers.
