Panathinaikos Athens put some promising talent in the pipeline for the future by signing guard Antonis Koniaris to a five-year contract on Thursday. Koniaris (1.96 meters, 17 years old) arrives from PAOK Thessaloniki, where he played from youth level until now. He made his debut in the Eurocup last season with brief appearances in three games, including his first basket in the last of them. In the Greek League, he appeared in five games. Koniaris has been a bronze medalist at the European Under-16 Championships with the Greek national team.
