Free agent guard Delonte West has signed a one-year deal with Fujian Xunxing of China, a source informed CSNNW.com.

West, 30, will have the opportunity to latch onto an NBA team once the Chinese Basketball Association's season concludes in February.

The veteran was eager to prove to NBA teams that he was capable of taking a contending team to the next level. Though, no one was willing to offer a guaranteed deal to his liking. Playing in China will allow NBA personnel to observe his improvements on and off the court.

During his eight-year NBA career, West has a career average of 9.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, 3.6 assists. He also shoots the three at a 37 percent clip.
