D.J. White has signed with Fujian of China.

White's signing comes as Fujian released former NBA player Al Harrington. White last played for the Bobcats during the 2014-15 and could still join an NBA team as a bench player once the Chinese season is over in February, but he shouldn't be on any fantasy radars while he's overseas.

The Bobcats have signed F D.J. White for the rest of the season.

He'll help back up Josh McRoberts at power forward, but shouldn't see enough minutes to make a difference in fantasy.

Bobcats signed PF D.J. White to a 10-day contract.

The Bobcats will sign D.J. White later this week.

As soon as he gets clearance from FIBA, he is expected to join the team. White would serve as the third center on the Bobcats behind Al Jefferson and Bismack Biyombo. Both of those centers have been healthy, so White will just be emergency depth.

The Warriors recently worked out free agent PF D.J. White, though they may not sign him this season.

The workout may have simply been due diligence as Golden State looks ahead to their Summer League and training camp rosters, though White could always be signed if injuries strike the Warriors' frontcourt. His most recent NBA stint came with the Celtics in 2012-13 when he averaged 2.4 points in seven minutes per game.

D.J. White is in the process of finalizing a deal with the Sichuan Blue Whales of the Chinese Basketball Association.

This would be the second stint in China for the former first-round pick as he attempts to boost his stock for a potential return to the NBA. White hasn't played meaningful minutes since the 2011-12 season, however, so any return to the U.S. would be as a bench player and wouldn't make a ripple in the fantasy landscape.

Forward D.J. White is heading to Bulls training camp and may have a shot at making the team's final roster.

White was waived by the Nets after being traded from the Thunder, and was all set to play overseas. This obviously changes things, and it would not be surprising to see the 29th pick of the 2008 draft make the team as an extra big body off the bench.

D.J. White has been "talking to a couple teams" and he's been offered contracts in China.

White was part of the blockbuster deal involving KG and Paul Pierce, but he was promptly waived by the Nets. He expects to make a decision in "the next couple weeks" and there's a good chance that he'll head overseas.

The Celtics traded D.J. White to the Nets as part of the Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett deal.

White was not included in the previously reported incarnation of the megadeal. He signed a multiyear contract with the Celtics in March, but it's not guaranteed. We expect White will be bought out at some point this summer.

Celtics sign D.J. White to a multi-year contract.

An expected move, White will function as depth and will remain with the team the rest of the way. He likely got a multi-year deal like Terrence Williams and will have to compete for a roster spot in training camp before next season begins.

The Celtics will sign D.J. White for the remainder of the season, sources told CSNNE.

White has signed two 10-day contracts, and with the C's needing big bodies behind Kevin Garnett, it's not a surprise to see White stick with the team. Prior to joining Boston, he had been playing in China this year.
