2014-15 Best Defender Trophy winner: Bryant Dunston, Olympiacos Piraeus
For the second season in a row, Bryant Dunston of Olympiacos Piraeus has been chosen by Turkish Airlines Euroleague head coaches to win the Best Defender Trophy. As a shot-blocker, stealer and all-around immovable force, Dunston anchored an Olympiacos defense that proved the best of the 2014-15 season. The Olympiacos center becomes the only player besides six-time winner Dimitris Diamantidis to be voted the competition’s best defender more than once. The Best Defender Trophy is the second in a string of 2014-15 EFES Euroleague Awards to be revealed this week.
