Panathinaikos OPAP Athens bolstered its frontcourt by inking power forward Aaron White to a one-year deal, the club announced Thursday. White (2.06 meters, 27 years old) arrives from Iberostar Tenerife, where he averaged 7.3 points and 4.1 rebounds in 8 Spanish League games last season. He started the 2019-20 campaign with AX Armani Exchange Milan, averaging 2.2 points and 1.5 rebounds in 14 games before joining Tenerife.

White spent his first two EuroLeague season helping Zalgiris Kaunas go further in the competition than at any point this century. He averaged 8.6 points and 4.3 rebounds as Zalgiris reached the 2018 Final Four in his rookie EuroLeague season and helped the team return to the playoffs in 2019. He shot 57.9% on two-pointers over that two-year period and had the second-highest total scoring, 602 points, behind only Brandon Davies. Before joining Zalgiris, White played two seasons in the 7DAYS EuroCup, first with Telekom Baskets Bonn and then with Zenit St Petersburg, averaging 10.1 points and 5.6 over a total of 26 games. He spent four years as a double-digit scorer at University of Iowa before turning pro.
