Zvezda picks up Punter from Olympiacos

Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade reinforced its backcourt with the addition of scorer Kevin Punter, who signed with the Serbian champs until the end of the season. Punter (1.93 meters, 26 years old) spent the first part of the season with Olympiacos Piraeus, which he parted way with earlier this week. He made 11 appearances with the Reds in his debut Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season and averaged 6.8 points and 1.9 rebounds.

Punter played for Segafredo Virtus Bologna last season and posted 14.2 points in the Italian League in addition to 16.0 points on 41.8% three-point shooting the Champions League to leading Virtus to the title while claiming final four MVP honors. It was Punter's second consecutive Champions League title; he lifted the trophy with AEK Athens in 2018. Punter started his career with Lavrio of Greece and also played for Port of Antwerp Giants in Belgium as well as Rosa Radom in Poland.
