Olympiacos Power Forward, Antic To Sign One-Year Deal With Atlanta Hawks

Months after helping Olympiacos win their second-straight Euroleague title, Pero Antic is heading to the NBA and will sign with the Atlanta Hawks according to a number of overseas reports.

Nearly a month after the Atlanta Hawks went international by drafting both Lucas Nogueira and Dennis Schroeder, the Hawks are now set to add another overseas import to their roster by signing Pero Antic.

According to multiple reports around Europe, Antic -- a 6-foot-10, 260 pound power forward -- will be in Atlanta on Thursday to take a physical and sign paperwork if all goes according to plan. The contract is expected to be a one-year deal with a one-year option.

The addition of Antic would be a big score for the Hawks thanks to his accomplished resume in Europe and overall toughness in the paint. Not only did Antic help Olympiacos capture back-to-back Turkish Airlines Euroleague titles the last two seasons, but he also boasts national team experience with Macedonia and multiple championships in Greece, Serbia, Russia and Bulgaria.

Last season with Olympiacos, Antic averaged 6.2 points and 3.3 rebounds in 15.2 minutes per game (30 games. Greek League) and 6 points and 3.5 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per game (31 games, Euroleague).
