Cleanthony Early Headed To Greece

Former Knick Cleanthony Early has agreed to a deal with AEK Athens, tweets Ian Begley of ESPN.

Early, 27, spent part of last season with the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G League after being waived by New York in October. He appeared in 16 games, averaging 9.2 points and 3.9 rebounds per night.

A second-round pick out of Wichita State in 2014, the 6’8″ small forward spent his first two NBA seasons with the Knicks. He averaged 4.3 points in 56 combined games and was in the G League for much of that time.

Early’s career suffered a setback in December of 2015 when he was shot in the right knee during a robbery.
