Former NBA player Sonny Weems has signed a deal to play for Guangdong Southern Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association, according to a Sportando report. Weems spent last season with Anadolu Efes in the Turkish League, where he averaged 12.8 PPG, 3.4 RPG and 3.1 APG.

Weems, 32, was a second-round pick of the Bulls in the 2008 NBA Draft.

Weems saw his most significant NBA action with Toronto in 2009/10, appearing in 128 games over a two-year stretch, averaging 8.3 PPG and 2.7 RPG.

The Arkansas native then made his way to Europe, where he suited up for teams in Lithuania and Russia. He returned to the NBA for the 2015/16 season with the Suns and Sixers, appearing in 43 games. Weems spent last season in Israel and Turkey.
