Lawson is joining Mets de Guaynobo, who are currently in the playoffs in the Baloncesto Superior Nacional, the top-tier of Puerto Rican basketball.

The Mets are currently leading 3-1 against Leones de Ponce in the Quarter-Finals. Leones de Ponce have a familiar face for Lawson, his former teammate from the 2009 National Championship Team, Deon Thompson.

Lawson was a member of the 2009 National Chanpionship Team and in many people’s opinions, one of the best point guards to come out of the University of North Carolina. Lawson went on to play 587 NBA games from 2009 to 2017.
