Former College of Charleston star Andrew Goudelock agreed to terms on a 1 year deal with Russian team UNICS Kazan on Friday which means the former Laker will most likely spend the season away from the NBA.
Goudelock had been hoping to secure a contract with an NBA team, especially after a solid week in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas earlier this month, but the LA Daily News reports that the offer from Russia was worth "Considerably more" than any offer he got in the states.
Goudelock was a 2nd round pick of the Lakers in the 2011 NBA Draft. He averaged almost 4 and a half points his rookie season but was waived before the start of the 2012-13 season and spent the majority of the year in the D-League.
It was time well spent for the Georgia native as he dominated play in the D-League going on to win MVP.
He returned to the Lakers in time for the last regular season game and the postseason after Kobe Bryant suffered a season ending injury.
Goudelock played well in the postseason but the Lakers declined to pick up his $1.1 million dollar option making him a free agent.
