Szolnoki Olaj shook up its backcourt on Tuesday by signing Peter Kovacs and releasing Rodney Green. Kovacs (1.89 meters, 27 years old) arrives from KTE-Duna Aszfalt Kecskemet, which he helped to the Hungarian League and Cup finals last season, only to lose to Szolnoki. He is best known for his defensive play, though he did contribute 5.2 points and 2.3 assists over 26 minutes per game this season. Kovacs is also a member of the Hungarian national team.
Green joined Szolnoki over the summer and averaged 6.3 points and 2.8 assists over four Eurocup games and 13.2 points and 3.2 assists in five Eurocup games.
