Penney (1.96 meters, 34 years old) arrives from Trabzonspor Basketbol, where he averaged 14.2 points and 4 rebounds in 28 Turkish League games last season. He has also played for Miami and Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA, Gran Canaria and Fuenlabrada of Spain, Asheville and Sioux Falls of the D-League, Maccabi Elite Tel Aviv of Israel, Zalgiris Kaunas of Lithuania, New Zealand Breakers of Australia and TED Kolejliler Ankara of Turkey. Penney is also a regular member of the New Zealand national team. He helped the Tall Blacks get to the 2002 FIBA World Cup semifinals, as well as taking place in the Olympic Games in 2000 and 2004. He won the D-League title with Asheville in 2005, lifted the Israeli League title and reached the Euroleague final with Maccabi in 2006, conquered the 2011 Australian NBL title with the Breakers in 2011 and led New Zealand to win the 2009 Oceanian championships.

He needs to be registered before this week's deadline in order to be eligible for the remainder of the Eurocup season.
