Lottomatica Roma announced Monday the addition of guard Ibrahim Jaaber for the remainder of the season. Jaaber (23, 188) arrives from Greek side Egaleo, where he was that league’s leading scorer this season. He passed his physical on Monday morning, finalizing the move. Jaaber takes over the roster spot for Jacopo Giachetti, who suffered a season-ending knee injury last month. Jaaber is in his first as a professional, after four successful seasons of college basketball at the University of Pennsylvania. He was averaging 22.4 points in 15 games for Egaleo. He also led the Greek League with 2.8 steals per game and his 4.2 assists per game were second in the league. Jaaber's Euroleague debut could come on Wednesday when Roma faces CSKA Moscow in the Russian capital.
