With the ends of NBA teams’ rosters starting to fill up, one fringe player who’s now off the market is veteran journeyman big Jeff Adrien. Adrien has played for five NBA teams since 2011, most recently 17 games with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2014-15, and international basketball reporter David Pick reports that he’s headed to Israel this coming season.

It’s unclear whether Adrien’s contract has any midseason NBA outs in case a team wants to pick him up when 10-day contracts open up in January, but for now, he’s going to be continuing his career overseas.
