Will Bynum is finalizing a deal to re-sign with the Guangdong Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association, international journalist David Pick reports (Twitter link). While the length and terms of the agreement are unknown, it was relayed back in June by Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post that Bynum had a standing offer to return to China on a three-year deal.
The 32-year-old guard spent most of the 2014/15 season in China with Guangdong, but signed with Washington late in the year and appeared in seven games for the Wizards. Bynum put up 22.3 points, 7.0 assists and 3.2 turnovers in 32.1 minutes per game for the Tigers last season. He had also garnered interest from Barcelona this Summer, according to a report by Enea Trapani of Sportando.
Bynum’s career numbers through parts of eight NBA seasons are 8.1 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 3.3 assists to go along with a slash line of .442/.272/.799. He averaged 3.1 points, 0.9 rebounds, and 2.6 assists in 9.6 minutes per night for the Wizards during his brief 2014/15 stint with the team.
