The other team he played that season for was Delaware 87ers in D-League. In 10 games he averaged 4.7ppg, 4.0rpg and 1.3bpg. Another team Lawal played shortly was Armani Milano (Serie A) in Italian league. In three D-League games he averaged 5.0ppg, 3.3rpg and 1.7bpg. He also played 5 games in D-League where he averaged only 2.2ppg and 3.2rpg. The last season Lawal played at Panathinaikos (A1) in Greek league. In 7 games he averaged 4.0ppg and 1.6rpg.

In 15 games he averaged 9.9ppg, 5.8rpg and 1.1bpg. He also played 9 games in FIBA Europe Cup where he averaged 9.3ppg, 5.4rpg and 1.3bpg.
In 2010 Lawal was drafted by Phoenix Suns (NBA) in second round (46th overall). He attended Georgia Tech and it is his sixth season in pro basketball. Lawal's team made it to the Italian final.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others he was voted Eurobasket.com All-Italian SerieA 2nd Team back in 2013.
