After spending the past four seasons with Olympiacos, Matt Lojeski has signed with club rivals, Panathinaikos, the club announced.

Lojeski’s contract includes a clause about his health, as the 32-year old wing finished last season injured.

The Belgian wing is also the seventh non-greek player on the roster so it will be interesting to see who Panathinaikos chooses not to use in Greek League play as there is a limit of six non-Greek players.

Lojeski spent his last four seasons with Olympiacos where he won the Greek League title twice, in 2015 and 2016.

Lojeski played in 26 Euroleague games for the Reds last season and averaged 9.92ppg, 3.08rpg, and shot 42-percent from three-point range before suffering a season ending injury.
