Josh Akognon Signs Camp Deal With Mavericks, Will Return To China If Not On Regular Season Roster

Josh Akognon signed a fully guaranteed contract with Liaoning in China for the 12-13 season. But the contract contains an out-clause to go to an NBA team, which has been exercised for Akognon to join the Dallas Mavericks on a non-guaranteed contract, a source told RealGM. Akognon will return to Lianoning if the Mavericks decide not to keep him on their regular season roster. Akognon is a 5-11 point guard out of Cal State Fullerton, who played in China and the D-League last season. Source: Christopher Reina, RealGM
