Originally an early entry candidate for the 2005 NBA Draft before withdrawing his name from consideration.

Career Highlights: Member of 2005 Greek National Team. Also played for the Greek Under-20 National Team and the Greek Under-18 National Team. Named 2004 Greek League Co-Newcomer of the Year. Played in the Greek A-1 All-Star Game in 2005 and 2006.

2005-06: Signed with Unicaja Malaga of the Spanish ACB League, but was loaned back to PAOK of Greek A-1. Averaged 14.4 points on 51 percent shooting in Greek A-1. Appeared in five FIBA EuroCup games, averaging 17.0 points. Shot 15-for-28 from three-point range.

2004-05: Averaged 13.2 points and 4.2 rebounds for PAOK. Appeared in 12 ULEB Cup games, averaging 13.9 points and 3.7 rebounds.

2003-04: Averaged 14.0 points and 4.6 rebounds for PAOK. Had a breakout performance in the Under-20 Euro Championships, averaging 25.5 points in eight games. Was named to the All-Tournament team.

2002-03: Averaged 9.6 points and 3.4 rebounds. In the FIBA Champions Cup, averaged 14.0 points and 3.6 rebounds.

Strengths: Works screens well and moves well without the ball. Ducks his head to penetrate and uses a bump-and-push to create space while attempting to finish. Has a nice shooting touch and 20-foot range. Knows how to draw fouls. Works diligently on defense and will hit boards with effort. Can play some point and run the transition, but still needs improvement on handle and strength.

Personal: Trains with Peja Stojakovic during the summer.
