Atlanta Hawks to Sign Euro PF/C Pero Antic

European big man Pero Antic will reportedly sign with the Atlanta Hawks.

Player agent Misko Raznatovic tweeted the news early Wednesday morning:

Hawks beat writer Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution confirmed Raznatovic’s tweet, although he notes the organization hasn’t made any official announcement yet.

Antić, 30, began playing professionally in 1999 and has played for several European clubs, most recently with Olympiacos of the Greek Basketball League and the Euroleague.

In the 2007-08 season, the 6’11” power forward was voted MVP of the Bulgarian National Basketball League for averaging 23.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game.

In the 2010-11 EuroChallenge, Pero helped Spartak St. Petersburg reach the Final Four, averaging 9.6 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. With Olympiacos, he won the 2011-12 Euroleague title, the 2011-12 Greek Basketball League championship, and the 2012-13 Euroleague title.
