Jahvon Blair signed with Gymnastikos Syllogos Lavrio Basketball Club, also known as Lavrio Aegean Cargo or Lavrio Megabolt, a Greek professional basketball club based in Lavrio, Greece that plays in the top-tier Greek League, as well as Europe’s Basketball Champions League (BCL).

The pro rookie from Canada jumps in the strong list of newcomers for the team coached by Christos Serelis featuring Alexandros Nikolaidis, Alfis Pilavios, Dimitris Kaklamanakis, Jerry Smith, Kenny Goins, Marcus Lewis, and Al-Wajid Aminu. In addition, Tyson Carter, Vassilis Mouratos, and Petros Geromichalos penned a contract extension this summer.
The Greek team, apart from domestic competitions, will be facing Nizhny Novgorod, JDA Dijon, and Unicaja Malaga in Group C of the Basketball Champions League Regular Season.
This is exciting news for Blair and further evidence of the talent development coming out of Patrick Ewing’s Georgetown Hoyas. Blair’s outside shot and nose for a bucket should thrive in Greece and Europe.
Blair was expected to play in the NBA Summer League with the Milwaukee Bucks, however he never appeared in a game or on the Bucks’ roster. This makes a little more sense if a European team did not want him to risk injury.

In April, Jahvon Blair has announced that he was moving on from Georgetown despite having bonus eligibility due to COVID-19 policy. Ewing will need a couple guys to set up and score from beyond in his absence.

Along with Jamorko Pickett, Blair was part of a special senior class—Patrick Ewing’s first recruiting class—with the pair that stayed four years raising a championship banner in March and making the NCAA Tournament.
Blair averaged 15 points per game with 3.6 assists this year. He finished with 1120 points, making 210 three pointers, over his career.
Blair’s game matured greatly in the past two years, taking a significant step last December. He grew from being a volume sharpshooter to one of the best scorers in the BIG EAST.
The commitment of Kaiden Rice (@kaidenrice11) might not make national headlines, but it says a lot about what the Hoyas’ offense will look like in 2021-22

Duke added Marquette center Theo John and four-star shooting guard Jaylen Blakes to its roster over the past four days. Patrick Baldwin Jr. now looks to be the Blue Devils’ last major target. https://t.co/696v9rVXNT
