Tyronn Lue Reportedly to Sign with Greek Team PAOK

New, comments

Former Orlando Magic point guard Tyronn Lue is nearing an agreement with the Greek club PAOK, according to TalkBasket, via SLAM. The Magic acquired Lue from Milwaukee in exchange for Keith Bogans last February shortly after Jameer Nelson went down with a season-ending shoulder injury. Lue's signing anywhere will officially end the Magic's roster turnover from last season's Eastern Conference Championship squad, as all its free agents have either moved on or re-signed with Orlando.

After the February trade, Lue averaged 3.0 points and 1.0 assists on 39.5% shooting for Orlando, making 14 regular-season appearances and just 1 in the playoffs. His lackluster play as the second-string point guard inthe immediate aftermath of Nelson's injury may have influenced GM Otis Smith's decision to acquire Rafer Alston at the trading deadline, relegating Lue to third-string duties.
