Verdell Jones has signed a contract to play professionally for Peristeri, a team located in Athens, Greece.

"It's a great feeling," said Jones. "First of all just to be back on the floor playing again means a lot to me. And then to be able to play professionally on the top level is even better."

Jones, who is still recovering from a torn ACL, received interest from several European teams.

"We had a couple other teams in Switzerland and Holland and places like that that were interested but this team contacted my agent and were very interested," said Jones. "They are one of the top teams in Europe so we felt it was a great opportunity."
