Kevin posted this tweet yesterday. Any clues as to where he's headed? I'm suspecting some NBA draft prep camp, but I'd appreciate any clues you all might have.

It looks like he is playing at some basketball event. An economics professor at Gonzaga named Bud Barnes replied to his post on Twitter and said:


@KPangos
Play well. And, hit the books!

Professor Barnes was the long time Dean of the business school. I was lucky enough to run into him briefly at the WCC tournament and he informed me that he decided to go back to just teaching. He's a great guy.

Interesting, I hadn't heard he was back.

Good luck, Kevin.

On the schedule for the Brooklyn Nets on June 1. http://www.netsdaily.com/2015/5/28/8681481/nba-draft-2015-brooklyn-nets-announce-pre-drat-workouts


The Brooklyn Nets have announced three days of NBA Draft workouts starting June 1st, at the team's practice facility in New Jersey. The Nets will select 29th overall in the first round and 41st overall, in the second round. The Nets, who didn't start working out prospects until June 23 last year, will reportedly work out between 50 and 60 prospects in June. In the past, they have even worked out players --including Bojan Bogdanovic in 2011-- right up till the morning of the draft.

In addition to the two picks the Nets have now, they may very well buy a second rounder (or move up). And while many of the prospects aren't likely to be drafted, the Nets will need players to man their two summer league teams, training camp roster and possibly a D-League entry. We'll have thorough and comprehensive coverage of these workouts, of course, so stay tuned.

Here's a piece about Kevin's journey from his hometown press, Yorkregion.com (http://www.yorkregion.com/opinion-story/5684002-holland-landing-s-kevin-pangos-aims-to-pique-nba-teams-interest/):

Kevin Pangos is living at a dizzying pace these days.

It has been a blur of airports and gymnasiums as he dribbles from city to city on a whirlwind tour to showcase his talents in the final days leading to the National Basketball Association Draft, slated for June 25 in Brooklyn, New York.

Not unlike other draft-eligible players, the Holland Landing resident is making the behind-the-scenes rounds leading up to the draft at the Barclays Center.

By the end of a five-week grind next Tuesday, he will have auditioned for 13 NBA teams. Itís a stop in with the Portland Trailblazers tomorrow, before visits to Cleveland and Boston complete the tour.

Thanks ZN,

Perhaps the best for last....The Celtics coach already knows KP pretty well, along with a couple of the players (obviously KO, but also Marcus Smart).

Danny Ainge is one crafty GM, like the way he operates (been following him since his BYU days).

If KP doesn't get drafted I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a chance to do Summer Leagues with Boston......

Barnes had a son going to GU when I was there. My mom was teaching in the Education dept. and so we became friends right away. Esp. after we found out we both played guitar.

From experience I can say that administration in any business and school, is no fun at all. A lot of paper pushing, meetings, more meetings and drama defusing. Teaching is where it is at. that is where the brain kicks in right along with the students!

Go KP, hope you have a great season and make some great memories.

Show them what you've got and hopefully see you back playing pro ball in North Americas someday in the not-to-distant future.

I really think he's going to make a career for himself in Europe. It just seems like his game is tailored to European style of basketball.

Agree, could have a Mike D'Antoni type of career......GL, KP.......


Wiki: D'Antoni was called by the Italian team of Olimpia Milano, starting a career which saw him become the club's all-time leading scorer. He was voted the league's top point guard of all time in 1990 and he paced his team to five Italian League titles, two Euroleague titles, two Cups of Italy, one Korać Cup and one Intercontinental Cup. Being of Italian origin, D'Antoni was also selected to play on the Italian national team for the European championship in 1989. In 2015, Olimpia Milano retired jersey no. 8 to honor him.

In the end, I suspect many will look back on their time in Europe and elsewhere as being more valuable than playing the NBA.

Can anyone confirm the rumor that Kevin is playing professionally on a Slovenian passport?
Someone told me that. Curious, as it makes him that much more valuable if he doesn't count as an import - it would be a little extra tinder for his Euro career. Just don't get any ideas about playing internationally for Slovenia, Kevin! Canada won't give you up.
