Let's round up some of Friday's notes from a few non-NBA leagues around the globe....
- Former eighth overall pick Joe Alexander has signed with the Liaoning Hunters of the Chinese Basketball Association, according to an Asia-Basket.com report (hat tip to Sportando).
- Another former NBA player is back in China as well, with James Singleton joining the Xinjiang Flying Tigers, per Asia-Basket.com. Singleton, who played in 12 games for the Wizards last season, was rumored back in September to be signing with the Flying Tigers.
- Michael Dunigan, a Grizzlies camp invitee this fall, has signed a one-month deal to play for the Perth Wildcats in Australia, according to Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype (Sulia link).
- Another Grizzlies camp invitee, Jerome Jordan, is drawing interest from China and is also considering the D-League, tweets Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports. Jordan was said to be receiving some interest from Chinese teams while he was still in camp with the Grizzlies.
The Grizzlies have requested waivers on camp invitees Michael Dunigan and Kyle Weaver, according to Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal (Twitter link). The roster moves reduce the number of Grizzlies under contract to 16.
Memphis opened the month with 20 players in camp, but released D.J. Kennedy and Jarrid Famous earlier in October. With 16 players still on the roster, 13 of those have fully guaranteed contracts, while three camp invitees remain: Ronald Dupree, Jerome Jordan, and Flip Murray. Depending on how many players the Grizzlies decide to carry into the regular season, at least one of those players will have to be cut.
