Canadian point guard Kevin Pangos signed up for two seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers after several years in Europe.
Kevin Pangos is back in North America. With for him a first opportunity to show himself in the NBA, the most successful championship in the world. And it is deserved. Brilliant on the Old Continent, especially in the Euroleague, the native of Ontario will join the Cleveland Cavaliers for two seasons. The contract is for $ 3.5 million according to ESPN.
It’s a great reward for the 28-year-old leader, who has been playing in Europe since 2015. He started at Gran Canaria before joining Zalgiris, Barcelona and Zenit Saint Petersburg. He also comes out of a brilliant year with the Russian club, where he compiled more than 13 points and 6 decisive assists per game.
Intelligent, skillful, altruistic, the player trained in Gonzaga will be able to bring an interesting touch to the Cavaliers’ rotation. For now, Kevin Pangos can act as third point guard behind Darius Garland and Ricky Rubio. But the squad could change during the season, possibly with another transfer from the Spaniard.
In any case, Pangos will have opportunities to prove that he has his place among the top five hundred players on the planet.
