Zalgiris Kaunas has made an addition to the roster. The Lithuanian champions have signed a contract until the end of the season with 27-year-old guard Edmond Sumner, who has spent the last five years in the NBA.
“Zalgiris was looking for a new addition for some time, we had few options, but we didn’t want to rush. We are happy that our efforts capitalized and that we were able to reach an agreement with a player who has a lot of experience at the highest level. We hope that Edmond’s adaptation in Europe will not take too long,” said Zalgiris Kaunas Director Paulius Jankunas.
In the 2022-2023 season, Sumner was signed by the Brooklyn Nets. There, he again played more than 50 games, averaging 7 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists.
Sumner parted ways with the Nets last summer and signed with the Charlotte Hornets, where he played four pre-season games but became a free agent a month later.
