HistoryEdit

Kavala B.C. was founded in 2003. In 2008, Kavala B.C. merged with Panorama B.C. to form the club Kavala B.C. (men's professional team). That same year, the merged club joined the first division of Greek pro basketball, the Greek Basket League, for the first time.

The club has played six seasons in the Greek top division (2008–09, 2009–10, 2010–11, 2011–12, 2012–13, 2015–16). The club's best finish in the top Greek League so far is sixth place, in the 2010–11 and 2011–12 seasons.

After spending two seasons in the Greek 2nd Division, Kavala was promoted again to the top-tier Greek Basket League. During the 2015–16 season, Steve Giatzoglou, became the team's head coach, after replacing Giannis Tzimas, due to the poor performances of the club to begin the season, and in order for the club to avoid relegation. Eventually, the club was relegated anyway, after finishing in 14th place in the league.
