Former No. 2 overall NBA Draft pick Derrick Williams is bringing his talents to the eastern hemisphere. According to Zhang Duo via a report from Orazio Cauchi of Sportando, Williams has agreed to a deal to play for the Chinese Basketball Association ballclub, Tianjin Gold Lions.

As reported by Zhang Duo, former no.2 overall pick Derrick Williams has signed a deal in China with Tianjin Golden Lions. Williams finished last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, averaging 6.2 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.

Williams last played in the NBA for the Cleveland Cavaliers, appearing in 25 regular season games for the team that went all the way to the NBA Finals last June. After signing a pair of 10-day contracts with Cleveland, the team decided to sign him for the rest of the season last March. However, Williams hasn’t hooked up with an NBA team since his deal with the Cavs expired at the end of last season, leaving him to consider playing abroad.

A trip to China could be beneficial for Williams, as he’ll be able to keep himself in shape by playing competitive basketball.

Williams, who was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2011, has career NBA averages of 8.9 points on 43.4 field goal shooting percentage and 4.0 rebounds per game.
