The Cleveland Cavaliers signed veteran international point guard Kevin Pangos to a two-year, $3.5-million contract, his agent told ESPN's Bobby Marks.

The first year of the deal is fully guaranteed.

The 28-year-old Canadian starred at Gonzaga from 2011-15, earning a third-team All-American nod from several organizations after his senior season - for which he was also named the West Coast Conference's Player of the Year.

Since going undrafted by the NBA in 2015, Pangos has plied his trade in Spain, Lithuania, and Russia. Since heading overseas, he's hit 41.7% of his threes for his career.

Playing with Zenit Saint Petersburg last season, Pangos averaged 13.5 points and 6.6 assists in just under 29 minutes per game in EuroLeague play, becoming the first Canadian to be named to the All-EuroLeague first team.

Pangos also played for Canada's senior national team. Suiting up at the 2019 FIBA World Cup of Basketball, the 6-foot-1 guard logged the second-most total minutes on the team next to backcourt partner Cory Joseph.
