According to David Pick of Eurobasket.com (Twitter link), former NBA player Josh Powell is signing a deal in the Philippines to play with Barangay Ginebra. Powell spent the first half of the season in China playing with Guangdong where he averaged 15.0 PPG and 9.9 RPG. Powell is no stranger to international basketball, having previously played for Olympiakos in Greece in 2012/13, following previous stints in Puerto Rico and China.
Powell was in camp with the Knicks prior to the start of the NBA season, but the team reportedly had no intention of retaining him for opening night, no matter how well he played in preseason. He was waived by the team in October then penned a deal with Guangdong.
In six seasons in the NBA he has career averages of 3.9 PPG, 2.9 RPG, and 0.5 APG in 12.5 minutes per contest, but Powell is best known for being a member of two championship winning Lakers teams in 2009 and 2010.
