Byron Mullens Departs Greek Team
Byron Mullens has returned to the states.
The Oklahoma City Thunder center who last month signed with the Greek basketball club Panionios had a change of heart and decided to come back home.
“Felt out of the loop not being with my team here,” Mullens said via text message after landing in Ohio on Sunday night.
Mullens left for Athens on Sept. 21. But infrequent games in the Greek League, coupled with a desire to participate with his Thunder teammates in organized voluntary workouts, helped lead to his decision to return.
