If i remember correctly, the C's were pretty interested in him last off-season too.

Might be a sign that Larkin could be getting interest from other teams.

Just look him up... 29 years old and never played in NBA? NO THANK YOU

Doesn't mean nothing. Teodosić also never played in NBA, but looks like a good fit for Clippers.
Although, I don't think Wannamaker is a better player than Larkin.

we might lose smart or rozier in the next 2 seasons, so adding a 6'4 backup pg with some strength doesn't hurt.  at least maybe he could make a decent perimeter defender to contest and bother shots.

Third point guard. Bigger than Larkin. Bench just got better

Maybe it is a firewall for Smart leaving?

Just watching his highlights he looks like a bigger more physical backup point guard.   He seems more of a scorer than Larkin.    I hope he plays competitive defense.

Scored 25 in Euro league championship game. Think he will be fine.

Probably means Larkin is not coming back. I liked Larkin. He had an impact when he played during the regular season.

That being said, it will be nice to add some size at that position. I feel like the C's Euro scouting has been pretty good and they probably have a good sense of this guy from watching Zizic.

I wonder what the contract is like? Barcelona was supposedly hot after this guy.

Wanamaker won the Finals MVP in the Turkish League earlier this month playing for Fenerbahce. It was the second time in his career hes won the MVP in a European championship series. He was Finals MVP in Germany in 2015. He also won the regular season MVP in Germany the following year. Hes played in France and Italy as well.

He has a reputation as a top 3-point shooter in Europe, hitting near 40 percent over his career. Physically strong, Wanamaker can play both guard positions and is a solid defender.
