Cal Basketball: Greek Guard Dimitrios Klonaras officially signs with Cal

Klonaras, who verbally committed several days ago, becomes fourth incoming freshman eligible to play this season

Dimitrios Klonaras, a guard from Greece, made his commitment to Cal official by signing a scholarship offer to play for the Bears this coming season, Cal announced Wednesday.

“Dimitrios has a versatile game and we welcome his skills to our perimeter group. His experience in high-level international play will also be an advantage for him as he transitions to the college game,” said head coach Mark Fox.

Klonaras verbally committed to Cal three days ago.

The 6-5 guard from Thessaloniki, Greece, becomes the Bears’ second commit this month, joining Kuany Kuany.

Klonaras helped lead Greece to the 2017 U16 FIBA Championship gold medal, pacing the team in assists and finishing second in points. He averaged 14 points and more than five rebounds, three assists and two steals per game to support Greece’s undefeated record. Klonaras tallied double-figure outings in seven of the squad’s eight wins.

Here is a video scouting report.

He also competed with Thessaloniki’s basketball club, PAOK BC, and attended the NBA’s 2018 Basketball Without Borders European camp in Belgrade, Serbia.

Klonaras boosts a class of incoming freshmen for the Bears that already includes Cal’s November signees Joel Brown and D.J. Thorpe.
