Powell signed a contract Tuesday with Luoyang of the Chinese National Basketball League, Sportando reports. Powell appeared in training camp with the Bucks last fall, but was ultimately cut before latching with teams in Argentina and Puerto Rico during the 2015-16 season. The move to the National Basketball League, a second-tier league in China, may net Powell a bigger payday than he enjoyed a season earlier, but the odds are still against him making another NBA appearance, especially now that he's 33 years old.
Powell was waived by the Bucks on Wednesday. Powell never had much of a chance to make the final roster, and he may turn back to coaching after spending last season as a member of the Rockets' staff.
The Rockets have requested waivers on forward Josh Powell Friday. The club claimed Earl Clark on waivers, pushing Powell out of a role. Powell appeared in one preseason game with the club, grabbing one rebound in six minutes.
The Rockets have waived veteran power forward Josh Powell, who played one game for the team at the end of last season and scored four points in 19 minutes. The 31-year-old Powell has played with seven different teams in his NBA career, which was launched in 2005. He has dealt with legal issues and has also played in China.
The Rockets will waive center Dexter Pittman and sign free agent power forward Josh Powell, the Houston Chronicle reports. Powell spent the season in China and has not played in the NBA since 2011. He averaged 3.9 points and 2.9 rebounds in six NBA seasons.
