Olimpia Milano announced Friday that they have signed big man Brandon Davies to a two-year deal.
Davies, 31, arrives in Milano after spending the previous three seasons with FC Barcelona. He is set for his return to Italy for the first time since the 2015-16 season when he played with Varese.
Davies joined Barca in 2019 and has won a Spanish League championship in 2021 and two Spanish Cups in 2021 and 2022.
After going undrafted in 2013, the Ugandan center joined the Philadelphia 76ers for the 2013-14 season and moved to the Brooklyn Nets in 2014-15.
He took the leap to Europe in 2015 with Elan Chalon Sur Saone in France before joining Varese. His breakthrough in the Italian LegaBasket earned him a deal with AS Monaco in 2016-17 and then Davies joined Zalgiris Kaunas between 2017 and 2019. He was named into the All-EuroLeague First Team in 2019 as one of Zalgiris’ pillars.
“Brandon is an athletic, modern player, who can shoot and has big-time EuroLeague experience, so we feel that his addition will improve the level of our group of big men”, said Olimpia Milano GM Christos Stavropoulos.
“I’m excited to be here and play for the Italian Champions. I can’t wait to start working, alongside this group of guys. See you all soon,”, Davies commented upon the announcement of his deal.
