Kevin Pangos, the best point guard of the last edition of the Euroleague and one of the most sought-after bases in the Old Continent, has decided to leave his European girlfriends behind to try his luck in the NBA. An old dream that has come to fruition with his signing for the Cleveland Cavaliers, where to share rudder with the Spanish Ricky Rubio.
As reported by ESPN journalist Bobby Marks, Pangos, trained at Gonzaga University, has reached an agreement with the Ohio franchise for the next two seasons and $ 3.5 million, although only the first year of the contract (1.6 million) is guaranteed for the 28-year-old player.
Pangos comes to the NBA after six seasons in Europe spread over Gran Canaria, Kaunas, Barcelona and Saint Petersburg where he has established himself as one of the best bases in the Euroleague after averaging 13.5 points, 6.6 assists, two rebounds and 0.7 steals in competition.
Numbers that earned him to once again call the attention of Barcelona and Conversation Jasikevicius, who already had him under his command in the Zalgiris. However, neither the cul offer nor the succulent renewal offered by Zenit have been enough to convince the Canadian point guard that he has fulfilled his dream of reaching the NBA.
