The American big man said the “Reds” winning history convinced him to accept the team’s offer and sign with Olympiacos.
“I am so excited to be part of Olympiacos’ winning history. What made me accept the team’s offer is the winning history of last season, where the club reached the EuroLeague Final Four.
This year, the team looks capable of repeating and going even higher and I want to be part of something that is going to be so big,” Black told the official website of Olympiacos.
