Mario Chalmers will extend his run in Greece to a second season through Aris, the team announced Monday confirming previous reports. The Kansas alum was already part of the preseason training of his new team. Chalmers, 34, played in Greece last season as well and won the Greek Cup with AEK. He averaged 6.0 points, 2.2 assists, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.5 steals per Basketball Champions League match, and added 6.1 points per game at the domestic level.
Free agent forward James Webb III has agreed to a deal in Greece with Larisa B.C., agent Daryl Graham told Hoops Rumors. Webb will head overseas for the first time since playing in Germany during the 2018/19 season. He’s expected to sign his deal later on Monday, which includes an NBA buyout, Graham said.
