Charlotte Hornets two-way small forward Arnoldas Kulboka has signed with Promitheus Patras in Greece on a one-year deal. The Lithuanian small forward was the first player the Charlotte Hornets drafted and stashed to actually play for the franchise. He spent most of his NBA career with the Greensboro Swarm in the NBA G League but did play two career games with the Charlotte Hornets. There is no news about his basketball plans after he plays the upcoming season in Greece.
Arnoldas Kulboka has reportedly signed a 1 year contract with Promitheus Patras in Greece. His time with the Hornets and Swarm has come to an end per @Eurohoopsnet

This past season with the Greensboro Swarm, Arnoldas Kulboka averaged 14.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game. He paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 44 percent and a three-point percentage of 41 percent. With the makeup of the Hornets roster last year, there just weren’t many minutes for another player that plays on the wing. He will receive a bigger role with Promitheus Patras and perhaps improve his stock with NBA teams.

The Hornets Summer League roster did not include Arnoldas Kulboka because he was back home with the Lithuanian National Team. It also seems he was not going to be a Hornets two-way player this upcoming season. Those two spots seem likely to go to two-way player Scottie Lewis and 2022 NBA Draft pick Bryce McGowens. Kulboka was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets in the 2018 NBA Draft with the 55th overall selection.
