D.J. White To Sign With Shanghai Sharks

Free agent forward D.J. White has agreed to terms with the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports (via Twitter). The deal will be for one year, with White eligible to join an NBA team in March when the CBA season ends, says Wojnarowski (Twitter link).

White spent the 2011/12 season with the Bobcats after the club acquired him in a trade with the Thunder at the 2011 trade deadline. He earned 11 starts for Charlotte, and in 58 overall contests, averaged 6.8 points and 3.6 rebounds per game.

The 6'9" forward hasn't seen a ton of playing time in his four NBA seasons, but has recorded a solid 14.5 career PER in his 124 career games. That wasn't enough to earn a qualifying offer from the Bobcats this summer though, as the team allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent.

ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported last Friday that the Sharks were heavily pursuing White.
