Veteran NBA point guard Brandon Jennings has announced that he is going to play next season in China, following what his worst stretch of NBA play with the Washington Wizards was. Meanwhile, the New York Knicks have finally added a veteran backup point guard. The Los Angeles Lakers have also added a point guard, but a younger one.

Brandon Jennings is going back overseas

Point guard Brandon Jennings has told Marc Spears from The Undefeated that he has signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal to play for China Shanxi in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA). Jennings spent this past season playing for the New York Knicks before asking to be waived halfway through the season to join a contender.

He signed with the Washington Wizards but played horribly during his time with the team. Last season the 27-year-old averaged 7.1 points, 2.4 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 0.9 steals while shooting 35.9% from the field and 35.9% on three-pointers. For his career in the NBA, he has put up 14.3 points, three rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.2 steals while shooting 38.8% from the field and 34.6% on three-pointers. Jennings famously spent the 2008-09 season playing overseas in Italy for Pallacanestro Virtus Roma to bypass having to play the mandatory one season in college.

Ramon Sessions signs with the Knicks

The New York Knicks have finally found their veteran point guard, agreeing to a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum with Ramon Sessions.

New York has been searching for an experienced mentor to help teach Frank Ntilikina, who they drafted with the eighth pick in this year's draft.

The 30-year-old Sessions spent last season with the Charlotte Hornets. He put up 6.2 points, 1.5 rebounds, and 2.6 assists while shooting 38% from the field and 33.9% on three-pointers in 50 games.

This upcoming season will be Sessions 11th in the NBA. He has also played for the Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves, Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings and Washington Wizards in his career.

L.A. Lakers bring back Tyler Ennis

The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a one-year deal for the minimum to bring back point guard Tyler Ennis.

Ennis was acquired at the trade deadline last year from the Houston Rockets. Last season Ennis averaged 4.3 points, 1.6 assists, 0.8 rebounds and 0.5 assists. He also shot 43.3% from the field and 38.6% on three-pointers. The 22-year-old has also played for the Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks.
