Darius Washington Aris TT Bank continues to bulk up its roster. On Saturday, the club announced the signing of point guard Darius Washington until the end of next season. Washington (188, 22) returns to Thessaloniki after playing for rival PAOK last season, during which he averaged 10.6 points in seven ULEB Cup games in a stint that was shortened by injuries suffered in a traffic accident. He arrives from the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA, where he played in 18 games this season, averaging 2.9 points in 8 minutes per game. Washington made a name for himself with a strong college basketball career at the University of Memphis, but he chose to turn professional after just two seasons. He also has played professionally in the Czech Republic for CEZ Nymburk, which he helped to win that nation's championship at the end of last season. Washington is the club’s second signing in a span of a few days after forward Vladimer Boisa joined last week.
