A playing career, packed with seven NBA seasons and three Turkish Airlines EuroLeague campaigns, concludes with Kevin Seraphin retiring. He revealed his decision Saturday in a lengthy interview with the YouTube channel FIRST TEAM.

Seraphin, 30, last year confirmed he was putting his career on hold and considering the retirement avenue. Knee injury woes forced him towards contemplating and eventually deciding to move on past his playing days.

The French center made his way to 437 NBA games between the Washington Wizards, Nw York Knicks, and Indiana Pacers after being picked 17th in the 2010 draft.

His career also included 49 EuroLeague games, including 42 with FC Barcelona in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons in his last active campaigns, and seven 7DAYS EuroCup appearances.
