Thomas Kennedy thrived in pressure-packed games for the Yokohama B-Corsairs last season en route to the franchise’s bj-league championship.

This season, his role as a go-to scorer has seen him suit up for the Shimane Susanoo Magic (10 games), followed by a 14-game stint with the NBL’s Chiba Jets, reuniting with former B-Corsairs coach Reggie Geary. In February, he joined his third team of the 2013-14 basketball season, the Niigata Albirex BB — the only one of the three to advance to the postseason in either league. Kennedy averaged 18.0 points in 22 games for Niigata to wrap up the bj-league’s regular season.
