Thread: Anybody know what happened with Karnowski?

    Default Anybody know what happened with Karnowski?

    Last I heard, he was playing in Poland, but I don’t see him on any Euroleague rosters for 2020. Not that anyone is playing right now, but he was one of my favorite players. It’s always killed me that he was about 5-7 years too late in declaring for the draft to be a rock star in the NBA.

    Yes, very good question...

    I remember watching him in a Summer League game and IMO he looked like he was having his way with whomever was guarding him...thought he would have gotten an invite to camp or maybe he just chose to go back to Europe...

    I think I remember that he was injured.

    Maybe jstock or one of the Zag fans near there can chime in.
    It's not funny.

    He's had some real issues with back injuries, unfortunately.

    He is reported to have signed with Zastal Enea BC Zielona Góra in the Polish league, after trying to heal up with some injuries, but I haven't seen him on any box scores for the team.

    ZN, Thanks for keeping us informed...

    It’s just so sad the dynamics changed so much that playing in the NBA was just not going to work for him...he only played one summer league game and it was a doozie too

    Again - Thanks

    For what it's worth, last I heard (a few weeks ago?) he's still recovering from injuries. If he was healthy, he'd be getting minutes (Zielona Gora is a strong team in the Polish top league for sure; they also play in VTB United League, which has KP's team too).
