Othello Hunter, one of the best-ever offensive rebounders in Turkish Airlines EuroLeague history and a 2019 champion, confirmed on social media late on Wednesday that he is ending his professional career at the age of 37. A 10-year EuroLeague veteran who spent the past two seasons with FC Bayern Munich, Hunter made his EuroLeague debut in 2013 with Montepaschi Siena. He had played in Europe's premier club basketball competition ever since.
Hunter will go down in history as a EuroLeague champ, having helped CSKA Moscow win the title four years ago. In the 2019 championship game against Anadolu Efes Istanbul, he had 7 points and 1 rebound in 17 minutes on the floor. That happened to be his fourth and final time reaching the Final Four. The veteran big man first helped Olympiacos Piraeus reach the championship game in 2015, before losing in the semifinals with Real Madrid in 2017 and CSKA in 2018.
