Motiejunas also registered 10 turnovers and shot 9-of-24 from the field overall. He clearly took advantage of all 42 of his minutes against NBA competition. Motiejunas will be sticking in China this year.

The 30-year old PG previously had workouts with the Knicks and Warriors in the last few weeks, but nothing materialized. At this stage of his career, he is running out of time to surface back up on an NBA team.

Zhou Qi scored just eight points on 3-of-8 shooting and added seven rebounds, as China suffered a devastating 72-59 loss to Venezuela.
Playing in what was probably the easiest group in the tournament, China lost to Poland and Venezuela and will now compete for the best possible seeding. Yi Jianlian added 11 points and eight rebounds but it wasn’t enough as the more experienced Venezuelans never really lost control of the game.
August 31, 2019, 10:17 amBen MoorePF, International
Ben Moore will head overseas as he has signed a contract with Galatasaray of Turkey.
Moore was a two-way deal with the Spurs last season but spent the entire year in the G-League. He put up strong numbers there with 12.8 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.5 triples with a 55.6 field goal percentage and being only 24 years old, he could be back on the NBA scene eventually.

August 25, 2019, 8:08 pmBriante WeberPG, International
Briante Weber, after spending the end of last season with the Greek club Olympiacos, is joining the Metropolitians 92, based in Boulogne-Levallois, France.
Weber attended free agent mini-camps in June with the Raptors and Wolves, and spent time in the G-League last year, but has never been able to catch on long-term with an NBA team. He has had brief stops with several NBA squads over the years, so it is possible he could return to a roster at some point this season. There is nothing to see here in terms of fantasy though.
August 23, 2019, 10:15 amTrevor BookerPF, International
Trevor Booker has worked out for the Nuggets and has workouts planned with the Bucks and Clippers, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype.
Booker was out of the NBA in 2018-19, spending the season in China after he didn't get any offers in free agency. He did return to the US to undergo a procedure on his foot but is apparently fully recovered. The last time we saw Booker he split 68 games between the Nets, Sixers and Pacers in 2017-18. If he does make a successful comeback he'll have no fantasy relevance.

Isaiah Canaan has signed a contract with the Shangdong Heroes of the Chinese Basketball Association.
The veteran journeyman played for the Suns, Wolves and Bucks last season, appearing in 30 games total. Canaan will be looking at a more prominent role and payday overseas as he attempts to build his value back up before trying to latch on to a team towards the end of the year. Canaan is off the fantasy radar.

Jerry Bayless has signed a deal with CBA club the Sichuan Blue Whales.
Bayless may have a little bit left in his tank. However, given his mileage, it's unlikely that the 10-year veteran will be making a return to the NBA any time soon.
August 17, 2019, 9:40 pmMalachi RichardsonSG, International
Malachi Richardson has signed with Hapoel Holon in Israel.
Richardson played 22 games for the Raptors last season and averaged 1.4 points. At 23 years old, he still has time to develop and possibly return to the NBA in the future.
August 17, 2019, 2:10 pmTyler DorseySG, International
Tyler Dorsey has signed with Maccabi Tel Aviv B.C. of Israel.
Dorsey played 21 games for the Grizzlies last year after being acquired midseason from the Hawks via trade. He played well over that span with 9.8 points in 21.3 minutes but will take his talents overseas where, "He'll have a chance to showcase what great things he can do," according to his new head coach. Maccabi has signed several former NBA players this offseason as Dorsey will be joining Omri Casspi, Nate Wolters, Quincy Acy and Tarik Black.

Guerschon Yabusele has signed with Nanjing Tongxi of the CBA according to Ennio Terrasi Borghesan of Sportsnado.
Yabusele will return to China where he last played for the Shanghai Sharks. He failed to prove much during his short stint with the Celtics after being taken 16th overall in 2016. It will take a big season and leap in development for him to regain interest from NBA teams.

Shabazz Muhammad has locked in a deal to play for Chinese CBA club, the Shenzen Leopards.
Muhammad was initially linked to the Shanxi Brave Dragons, but ultimately inked a deal with the Leopards. He has a shot at making a splash in the Chinese League as a high-volume scorer for his team.

NBA veteran Jerryd Bayless has agreed to terms with Sichuan of the CBL for next season.
Bayless spent this past season with the Sixers and the Wolves, even starting a handful of games. Bayless has never shied away from getting shots up when given playing time and will likely resurface for a team looking for guard depth after the CBL season concludes.
