The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a two-year contract with veteran guard Kevin Pangos. The deal is with $3.5 million over two years, with the first season being fully guaranteed. The Cavs will use part of their Non-Taxpayer Mid-Level exception to give Pangos $1.7 million in 2021-22.
Pangos went undrafted out of Gonzaga at the 2015 NBA Draft. He's played in NBA Summer League in 2015, 2016 and 2017, but has never signed a contract in the NBA.
Over the last six seasons, Pangos has developed into one of the top point guards in Europe. He's played for top clubs in Spain, Lithuania and Russia during that time.
In 2020-21, Pangos had his best season. The 6'2'' lead guard averaged 13.1 points on 45/40/87 shooting splits and 6.7 assists per game for Zenit Saint Petersburg.
