After being waived by the Grizzlies in mid-October, Josh Akognon has agreed to sign with China’s Qingdao team, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com (on Twitter). You may recall that Qingdao is the same team that Tracy McGrady played for last season before hooking on with the Spurs.
The guard had a brief stint with the Mavericks last season before joining the Grizzlies in camp this past offseason. Akognon spent last season in China with the Liaoning Jiebao Hunters in China, where he averaged 29 points per game. The 27-year-old Cal State Fullerton product was claimed off waivers by Memphis on July 23rd after his minimum-salary contract was waived by Dallas on July 21st.
