Almost four years have passed since Kenneth Faried last played in an NBA game. The 33-year-old forward left the league in 2019 and has been on six different teams since.
Currently he with the Capitanes de Ciudad de México, a team from the Mexican basketball league (LNBP), and hopes to prove he deserves another chance in the NBA.
Via Sam Yip of HoopsHype:
“Hopefully being in this great city of Mexico City and being on this team, Capitanes, the experience and the minutes I’ve been getting, I can continue to showcase to the NBA that I’m ready for whatever team wants to hopefully pick me up. Like I said, I’m ready, I’m focused, I’m locked in, I’m a better vet, a better person, a better leader and I don’t even need to be a leader. I can be quiet and sit back and just follow whoever the leader is.”
Faried has averaged 11.4 points and 8.1 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game over eight years in the league.
