    Pangos has a big game in Barcelona win.

    It took Pangos most of the game to find his rhythm. Once he did, however, Pangos was unstoppable. He had 13 of his 16 points in the final 7 minutes of the game, making sure Barcelona rallied and came back home with a valuable road victory.

    It's been a rather up and down year for Kevin. With both Euroleague and ACB action getting aclimatiswed to his new team/ teammates has been rather like his first year at Zalguiris.

    On Sunday, KP and Barcelona faced off against Kyle Wiltjer and Unicaja.

    Kevin was perfect from the field (and the line) with a 16 point, 7 assist performance to lead Barcelona to a 94-83 home win.

    https://www.eurobasket.com/boxScores...27_100_138.asp

    1st string PG Thomas Huertel didn't play for some reason so KP got the start and saw 28 minutes of court time.

    It will be interesting to see if he continues starting or if he goes back to backup when Huertel is available.

    For the second game in a row Kevin played against a Zags alumni.

    Barcelona was up against Greek powerhouse Olympiacos, currently the employer of one Nigel Williams-Goss...

    The game was played at Olympiacos "PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP STADIUM" home court unfortunately for the home supporters they left pretty unhappy.

    Chris Singleton (a pain for Olympiacos when he played against crosstown rival, Panathinaikos last year ) top scored with 18 points in the lopsided 76-55 point win.

    Kevin started and was the top rated player scoring 9 points and 8 assists (with no turnovers), Nigel also score 9 points for the losing side but had three turnovers vs 1 assist.

    Will be interesting to see if KP continues to start, they play against Tenerife on Sunday and currently have a 2 game advantage (in the domestic ACB) over 2nd place Real Madrid.

    Default Brock Motum on KP

    Brock Motum (played for WSU 2009–2013) was interviewed by pickandroll.com about his BB career, and fielded the following series of questions in the following manner:

    The reporter says "Having had the opportunity to play with so many teammates, I was interested in key individuals who had impacted or influenced him throughout his career. [Brock replied:]“Kevin Pangos was a great teammate of mine when I was at Žalgiris,” explained Motum. “He is a point guard and now plays at Barcelona. We were rivals at college where he went to Gonzaga, and he was one guy who I remember as a great teammate.

    “Anthony Petrie was a great teammate when I was in Adelaide. He is one of my favourite teammates throughout my career. Just a great guy on and off the court.” He also mentioned Klay Thompson, a former teammate at Washington State, who had been influential throughout his career.""

    Not too bad being remembered ahead of Clay Thompson.

    KP has been a little quiet lately, playing second fiddle to Thomas Heurtel who has been playing very well for the 5th ranked team in Europe.

    Today however he led his team to a Euroleague victory over fellow ACB team Gran Canaria.

    https://www.euroleague.net/main/resu...asoncode=E2018

    5/6 from downtown is impressive but maybe even more impressive is a team 19/28 from the deep.

    It did take Kevin until his second year with Zalgiris to really hit his stride, he has been a bit hit and miss so far his first year at Barcelona....

    After bowing out in the first round (after a good fight) of Euroleague playoffs (they were a 5 seed lost to Anadolu Efes the 4 seed) , Barcelona have swept through undefeated in ACB playoffs to meet Fellow powerhouse Real Madrid.

    Kevin has alternated between starting and bench, with the semifinal series doing both. He averaged 7 ppg, 4 apg with an 11:1 A/TO ratio. He's been abnormally inefficient from the deep which is probably why he is coming off the bench now.

    The final series will be a barnstormer and it will be interesting to see if KP can get his stroke back as that is could be one of the keys to Barcelona winning the series.

    It's being reported that Kevin and Barcelona are talking about mutually ending the contract. Valencia Basket reportedly interested in him. Perhaps some NBA teams are interested in bringing him over, since quite a few Euroleague players have already signed with NBA teams - Nicolo Melli, Marko Guduric.

    These types of reports are brutal on me though. I immediately start dreaming about him coming back to Zalgiris even though there's close to no chance of that happening.

    After the rather disappointing year with Barca, I do hope KP gets a new team.

    He had flashes of good play, but Huertel played very well and deserved the majority of the focus.

    Kevin Pangos will stay at FC Barcelona Lassa for another year. Rodriguez made a statement a couple of days that ALL players who are under contract this year with the team WILL BE on the team's roster next year.

    Kevin is out 4-6 weeks with a foot injury. https://www.eurohoops.net/en/eurolea...ast-one-month/

    Kevin's future after basketball is so bright that he will only look back at his days in short pants as fun and preparation for the trip ahead ……

    Yeah, but Pangos had a pretty rough season in Barca last year to the point that they felt he couldn't run as the lead PG and had to bring in Malcolm Delaney over top him (lead PG Thomas Heurtal had a serious injury over the summer). This injury to KP does not help at all - as he will miss at least the first month of the season. There is a real risk Pangos will be out of the rotation when Huertal gets back from injury sometime in the new year. If he doesn't have a big turnaround this year he is proably gone from Barca for next season - they are paying him allot and so far it hasn't looked to be worth it.

    Oh, so there's a possibility. I read a report saying he won't be coming back this year.

    Kevin looking pretty good out there against Joventut (Badalona), in the first game of the resumed Spanish league.

    It looks like only the top 12 teams were brought back to finish out the season and this is a game Barcelona would be expected to win. (1 seed vs 12 seed)

    Just great to see Kevin back in action and hopefully he finds a nice landing spot where he can really thrive in his next deal.

    Zalgiris' coach Jasikevicius just got the Barcelona head coach gig. Pangos, Davies and Jasikevicius reunited Although it's unclear if there will be enough room for Pangos now that Nick Calathes (arguably the best PG in Europe) has joined Barcelona.

    Interesting stuff.

    On the one hand it felt like Pangos was on his way out and the signing of Calathes seemed to all but assure it but I know he has a great relationship with Jasik. I wonder if he'll accept a smaller role with the hopes being on a viable Euroleague contender.

    Kevin has just signed with Saint Petersburg Zenit (Russia). Apparently a very lucrative deal (slightly over €1M Euros per year). Very beautiful city too, probably the most European of Russian cities. And they're playing in the Euroleague. Might even be one of the contending teams since this COVID-19 crisis is unlikely to affect them financially with such a strong sponsor (GAZPROM).
