Ty Lawson To Sign In Greece

Free agent guard Ty Lawson is signing in Greece with Kolossos H Hotels, landing his first contract since being banned from the Chinese Basketball Association last fall, sources told Hoops Rumors.

Lawson, 33, holds nine years of NBA experience, making past stops with Denver, Houston, Indiana, Sacramento and Washington. He signed with the Wizards prior to the 2018 playoffs, averaging 5.8 points and 19.2 minutes in five postseason contests.

Lawson was the No. 18 pick of the 2009 NBA Draft to Minnesota, who then traded the North Carolina product to Denver. He spent the first six seasons of his career with the Nuggets, averaging a career-best 17.6 points and 8.8 assists per game in 2013-14.

The team is expected to formally announce the agreement in the coming days, jump-starting the third overseas stint of Lawson’s professional career.

    Once upon a time Ty Lawson was a 6-10 PG in the game.

    He was so much fun to watch in transition in Denver. Going to Indy and Houston derailed his career.

      The same thing happened with Isaiah Thomas, even more so in his case.

      These short PG’s, much like CP3 these days, have become obsolete because of switching defenses and they get beat so easily against larger players.

    Why did China ban him? I mean, he was right – historically, Chinese women have not been known for having big booties. In the very same post he also said he was going to update his stance on the matter.

    Massive LOL to every word of that story, btw
