Ty Lawson announced on social media via David Pick that he had reached an agreement in China with the Shanxi Dragons but he later denied it.

Lawson played for the Sacramento Kings last season.

"Several teams have expressed interest in Ty from China and there have been discussions and Ty has expressed mutual interest," Lawson's agent Larry Fox told HoopsHype. "In addition, several NBA teams are interested in Ty, Ty is weighing his options and no decision has yet been made."
