Free agent center Jerome Jordan has signed with Jiangsu Tongxi of the Chinese Basketball Association, international journalist David Pick reports (Twitter link). The length and terms of the deal are not known, nor if it includes an NBA out clause. If his pact does not include such a clause, Jordan would be eligible to join an NBA team in the spring after the Chinese season ended.
The 29-year-old Jordan appeared in 44 contests for the Nets last season, averaging 3.1 points and 2.4 rebounds in 8.7 minutes per game. His slash line was .532/.000/.864. Jordan wasn’t extended a qualifying offer by Brooklyn and became an unrestricted free agent as a result. The center had signed a one-year non-guaranteed deal with the team that included a partial guarantee of $100K only if he remained under contract through October 25th, 2014, but he stuck on the Nets all season, earning a full $816,482 salary.
Jordan was in training camp with the Pelicans this year, but New Orleans parted ways with him and his non-guaranteed minimum salary arrangement.
