Sean Kilpatrick To Play In Greece

Veteran NBA shooting guard Sean Kilpatrick has lined up a new deal, with Greek powerhouse Panathinaikos announcing in a press release that it has reached an agreement with Kilpatrick on a rest-of-season contract (hat tip to Sportando).

Kilpatrick, who turned 29 on Sunday, has appeared in 157 total NBA games and had an eventful 2017/18 campaign. After starting the season with the Nets, he was waived by Brooklyn and signed a two-way contract with the Bucks. Milwaukee converted his two-way deal to a standard NBA contract last January, then waived him in March. Kilpatrick subsequently inked a pair of 10-day contracts with the Clippers before finishing the season with the Bulls.

In 52 total games with four clubs last season, Kilpatrick averaged 6.3 PPG and 1.7 RPG in 12.3 minutes per contest. He was at his best in Chicago, posting 15.4 PPG on .439/.396/.813 shooting in nine games with the Bulls, but it wasn’t enough to earn him a roster spot for 2018/19 — the team waived him in July.

Panathinaikos is just 7-9 in EuroLeague play so far this season, but has gone undefeated (11-0) so far in Greek Basketball League contests. Kilpatrick will be joining a squad that features a handful of former NBA players, including 2016 lottery pick Georgios Papagiannis, who signed with the team during the 2018 offseason.
