Jerome Dyson Signs In Israel

It's been a busy offseason for Jerome Dyson, who started the summer with the Hornets before being traded to the Suns in a three-team deal involving Robin Lopez. After he was waived by Phoenix, Dyson worked out for the Heat, but it appears he'll continue his playing career overseas rather than in the NBA. According to the Twitter feed for Israel's Winner League, Dyson has signed a contract with Israeli team Hapoel Holon (hat tip to Sportando).

Dyson, 25, played his college ball at the University of Connecticut before going undrafted in 2010. He was one of a handful of players to sign 10-day contracts with the Hornets last season, making his NBA debut late in the year. In nine games with New Orleans, the 6'3" guard averaged 7.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 20.0 minutes per contest.

Dyson becomes the latest NBA free agent to sign a non-NBA deal this summer. Besides Dyson, Craig Smith was among the free agents to sign in Israel for the coming season.
