The Greek champions signed Croatian NBA player Mario Hezonja

Panathinaikos OPAP Athens strengthened its roster by signing swingman Mario Hezonja for the remainder of the season, the club announced Monday. Hezonja (2.02 meters, 25 years old) arrives from Portland of the NBA, where he averaged 4.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in 59 NBA games last season.
