  follow us on Facebook Twitter


PAOK Thessaloniki (A1) agreed terms with 28-year old Rwandan international center Darrius Garrett (206-96kg-90, college: Richmond). He played last summer at Broad Street Brawlers (The Basketball Tournament) in the U.S. Garrett managed to play in three leagues in three countries last year. He ended the last season at Beroe (NBL) in league where in 10 games he had 11.5ppg, 10.2rpg, 1.6apg and 1.7bpg. Good season as he was named League Player of the Week. But the most of that year Garrett spent at Malvin (LUB) in league. In 15 games he recorded 7.9ppg, 5.3rpg and 1.8bpg.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Garrett's team was regular season runner-up in Swiss LNA in 2013. He was also voted All-Swiss LNA Defensive Player of the Year back in 2013. Garrett was called to Rwandan Senior National Team this year.
He is quite experienced player. Garrett has played in seven different countries on four different continents (Europe, Asia, Latin America and of course North America). He has played previously professionally in Italy (Vanoli Cremona), Lebanon (Hoops Club), Poland (BM Slam Stal), Turkey (Afyon Bld), Venezuela (Marinos), Switzerland (Fribourg) and Greece (Koroivos and Nea Kifisia).
Garrett attended University of Richmond until 2012 and it will be his seventh season as a professional player.
He could be described: A very good low post operator, who has great leaping ability and athleticism. His career figures show that he is a true intimidator inside, great shot blocker and defender.
