Levon Kendall Future Uncertain
2013 Team Canada SMNT camp invitee Levon Kendall’s future remains a mystery and its early August. 6-ft-10, 29 year old Canadian baller from Vancouver, BC opted out of a contract with Blusens Monbus Obradoiro of the Spanish ACB a few weeks back with the aim of siginig a contract with a team of higher standards in the ACB League also known as the Liga Endesa for sponsorship reasons.
Kendall agreed to pay a clause and opt out of a contract with his former club with intentions of getting a better contract with a top team in Spain and his decision may have back fired.
Unicaja Malaga was first interested in Kendall but later was ruled out. Then Bilbao Basket started to show strong interest taking on the Canadian but Kendall was a only a second option if the club failed to land German Gabriel.
Other teams that showed the big fella love were Kutxa Labor and Alba Berlin which could make an offer over the next few days. Which would eliminate any concerns Levon and his camp have. Kendall is represented by the same agent as fellow SMNT invitee Carl English. Jeff Zanik of ASM Sports who refused to comment on the situation. Also sources surrounding the Canadian SMNT have all but guaranteed Kendall will be a lock in the Canadian front court along with NBA talents Joel Anthony, Tristan Thompson and Andrew Nicholson.
