AEK Athens have announced the signing of journeyman Dionte Christmas for the remainder of the season.

Christmas has had a previous spell in Greece where he played for PAOK and Rethimno in the 2011-12 season, where he averaged 18.6 points per game. He has had previous spells in the NBA and the Euroleague with CSKA Moscow.

The veteran’s season began with French side, Paris Levallois. He left in December to join the Cleveland Cavaliers, but never fitted into the rotation, returning to Europe after just two games in the NBA.
