Edmond Sumner Signs With Lithuanian Club

Former NBA guard Edmond Sumner has signed with Lithuania’s Zalgiris Kaunas, the European team tweets.

Zalgiris was searching for a replacement for Naz Mitrou-Long, another former NBA player who signed with Greek’s Olympiacos.

Sumner became a free agent when the Hornets waived him during training camp. He had signed an Exhibit 9 contract prior to camp.

Sumner, 26, averaged 7.1 PPG, 1.5 RPG, and 1.3 APG in 53 games (13.9 MPG) for the Nets last season, posting a shooting line of .461/.356/.917. It was his first season back following an Achilles tear that cost him all of 2021/22.

A second-round pick in 2017, Sumner also appeared in a total of 108 regular season games with Indiana. In his 161-game NBA career, he has averaged 6.2 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 14 minutes per night.
