Report: Sonny Weems Heading to Europe

by July 02, 2011

Weems seems to prefer the job security of a deal overseas, and is reportedly on the verge of signing a one-year contract in Europe, according to Hoops World: “Sonny Weems has decided to take advantage of his overseas eligibility and is on the verge of signing a one-year contract with a team in Europe, according sources close to the situation. The Toronto Raptors extended a qualifying offer to Weems last Monday, which would have made him a restricted free agent. However, Weems felt that signing overseas was the best option for him so that he could continue playing and developing his game during this work stoppage. Weems’ deal will not have an NBA-out, which means he’ll remain overseas even if a new collective bargaining agreement is ratified.”
