Nick Calathes officially joined Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul, the Turkish club announced.

The Greek player arrives to Istanbul on a 2-year deal.

Despite the great interest from Panathinaikos OPAP Athens, Calathes chose Turkey instead of Greece this summer. Turkish media previously reported that Calathes finds it attractive playing under his fellow countryman Dimitris Itoudis.

The 33-year-old guard averaged 7.3 points, 6.4 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 1.1 steals, and 11.8 PIR for FC Barcelona over 29 EuroLeague games last season.

He became the EuroLeague all-time assists leader overtaking former teammate and record-owner Vassilis Spanoulis with a total of 1,711 assists across 281 matches.

Calathes started his professional career with Panathinaikos in 2009 and stayed there until 2012. In 2015, he came back to the team and spent five more years with the Greens until 2020, when he left for Barcelona.

Between 2012 and 2015, he played for Lokomotiv Krasnodar in Europe and Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA. During two seasons across the Atlantic, Calathes averaged 4.6 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 2.7 dimes throughout 129 duels.
