Former Dayton Flyers guard Jordan Sibert announced Monday he has signed to play professional basketball in Greece.
Sibert will play with PAOK in Thessaloniki, Greece. That’s in northern Greece, about a five-hour drive from the capital, Athens.
“I’m blessed, and I’m ready,” Sibert wrote on Twitter.
Sibert played two seasons at Ohio State, transferred to Dayton and finished his two-year career with the Flyers in 2015. He scored 1,030 points in two seasons. The Flyers won five NCAA tournament games in those two seasons.
Sibert played last season in the NBA D-League with the Erie Bayhawks. He averaged 13.1 points in 44 games.
Sibert’s brother, Logan Brogden, an assistant coach at Tiffin University, announced the news on Instagram and wrote, “I talk to my brother a lot about the journey, the process, and how important it is to enjoy it and learn from it. Recently we have started to talk about the process of giving back, and helping those who might be chasing a similar dream to our own. The NBA is not the only professional basketball association paying players to play, and at the end of the day it is about playing the game you love, getting better at it daily, and getting paid to do so once you become a professional. Don’t ever put mental or spiritual limitations on your definitions of success and greatness, and be open and willing to embrace change.”
