Gani Lawal has signed a one-year contract with Italian club Olimpia Milano of the European League, agent Errol Bennett of Three Eye Sports told RealGM. Lawal’s representatives had been finalizing his agreement in recent days, and the two sides signed Saturday afternoon. Lawal also received strong interest from a Turkish team. With Olimpia Milano, he joins former Cleveland Cavaliers forward Samardo Samuels. Lawal inked a multi-year contract with the Philadelphia 76ers early last month, but he played six preseason games, would be given only a limited role in the regular season, and was ultimately released on Oct. 26.
Newly acquired Sixer Gani Lawal did not attend the team’s practice here at the Bizkala Arena at the Biblao Exhibition Center. But the post player was a hot topic. “Gani is another young athletic player who we hope to put in our pipeline,” general manager Sam Hinkie said, “and a guy that has a chance to develop and sees opportunity here, which is why he did what he did and is willing to come here and compete for a spot.” The 6-foot-9, 234-pounder signed a partially guaranteed deal with the Sixers on Friday. The team was forced to waive Solomon Alabi to make room on the 20-man preseason roster.
