Kevin Pangos is reportedly leaving Cleveland and headed to Moscow with a lucrative deal

By Eurohoops team / info@eurohoops.net

Kevin Pangos’ stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers is coming to an end as he is signing a two-and-a-half-year deal with EuroLeague powerhouse CSKA Moscow, per reports by gazzetta.gr.

As mentioned in the report, the two sides are close to reaching an agreement on a $6M contract which will last through the end of the 2023-24 season. Per Eurohoops sources, so far neither side confirms the deal but the interest of CSKA is a fact and dates back to the previous offseason. The Cavs should waive Pangos and then the deal can be completed.

Pangos, who made his NBA debut with the Cleveland Cavaliers this season, averaged 1.7 points and 1.3 assists across just 7 minutes on the court before being assigned to the Cavs’ G-League affiliate Cleveland Charge.

An All-EuroLeague First team member with Zenit, the 29-year-old guard will return to the competition for his fifth campaign.

With Pangos onboard, CSKA is looking to make a push into the EuroLeague standings (currently holds a 14-9 record) ahead of the playoffs and improve its VTB League placement (9-4 record, fourth overall).
