Report: Veteran guard Will Bynum signs in China
Last season, Will Bynum played in China for most of the year with the Guangdong Southern Tigers before signing with the Wizards at the end of the regular season. Bynum has been a solid backup point guard throughout his career, but he’s been unable to stick in the NBA since leaving the Pistons in 2014.
Unable to secure an NBA deal this summer, David Pick reports that Bynum is heading back to China:

Bynum had a successful season with the Tigers, who signed him as a replacement for Emmanuel Mudiay, who battled ankle problems in his single season overseas before ultimately becoming the seventh overall pick in this year’s draft. If Bynum wants playing time, he’s more likely to find it in China than he is in the NBA. But it still wouldn’t be surprising to see a team pick him up in March after the CBA season is over.
