Portland Trail Blazers Summer League standout Jarnell Stokes has agreed to a one-year contract with the Zhejiang Golden Bulls of the Chinese Basketball Association, according to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders.

Stokes, 23, was selected by the Utah Jazz with pick No. 35 in the 2014 NBA Draft and immediately traded to the Memphis Grizzlies. He was traded twice more—to the Miami Heat and later the New Orleans Pelicans—early in his NBA career. He last played for the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA G-League.

As part of the Trail Blazers’ Summer League squad, Stokes shined after rookie center Zach Collins succumbed to injury, averaging 13.0 points and 7.6 rebounds per game for the duration of the exhibition.
