D.J. White, who played last season with in the NBA the Charlotte Bobcats, will be playing in China in 2012-13 with the Shanghai Sharks.
The Shanghai Sharks have signed former Indiana standout, D.J. White, to a contract for the 2012-13 season, according to Chinese and American media.
The 6-9 White, who has spent the last four seasons in the NBA playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder and Charlotte Bobcats, has averaged 6.3 points and 3.4 rebounds over his career. Last year for the Bobcats, White played in 58 games, averaging 6.8 points and 3.6 minutes in just under 19 minutes per game.
Known as a rugged scorer and rebounder, White had effective stretches during his time in the NBA, but ultimately was hampered by injuries that kept him out of the lineup for prolonged periods of time. White was drafted with 29th overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Detroit Pistons, but was acquired by the Thunder shortly after being selected in a draft day trade.
White will pair up alongside Elijah Millsap, who was officially signed two weeks ago, to act as the Sharks’ two imports this year. The Sharks are currently playing pre-season games in Australia, and White is expected to meet up with the team Down Under in the next few days.
