Kendrick Perkins has opted to retire from the NBA G League.

“Perk was an invaluable asset and our team was very fortunate to have his leadership and presence throughout the season,” said Charge General Manager Brendon Yu. “We wish him the best of luck as he prepares for the next step in his career and will fondly remember his time in Canton.”

Perkins played in 27 games for the Charge this season (17 starts) and averaged 8.7 points on .532 shooting with 7.1 rebounds in 21.2 minutes per game. 

Perkins announced his return to the Cavaliers after Thursday's trade deadline but then deleted the post.
