Faried was released by the Zhenjiang Lions on Monday, Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.com reports.
Faried ultimately played in seven games for the Lions, averaging 17.3 points and 10.0 rebounds. He'll have a chance to return stateside and could fill a role for a team in need of rebounding and scoring off the bench. Faried saw actions in 37 games last year for Brooklyn and Houston, averaging 10.4 points and 6.8 rebounds in 19.7 minutes.
Faried has inked a $4.4 million contract with the Chinese team Zhenjiang Lions, Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.com reports.
Faried appeared in 37 games last year between the Nets and Rockets, averaging 10.4 points and 6.8 rebounds across 19.7 minutes. He'll be continuing his career in China during his age 29 season.

Faried missed Wednesday's Game 5 loss for personal reasons. He was a healthy scratch the previous two games, but did log five minutes off the bench in Game 2.
Faried is listed as inactive due to personal reasons for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Warriors, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Faried is slated to miss Wednesday's game due to personal reason. While it's unclear what exactly Faried's dealing with, his absence won't have much of an impact on the Rockets rotations considering he's managed just five minutes of run so far in Round 2.
Faried managed 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and six rebounds in 16 minutes during Sunday's 122-90 victory over Utah.
Faried saw a decent amount of playing time in Game 1 of the Rockets series against the Jazz, taking advantage of the blowout. He missed only one field-goal on his way to 11 points, adding six boards in 16 minutes. He will likely see less action if and when the games become closer but he has certainly been a solid pickup for the Rockets and has to be loving life after being out of the rotation in Brooklyn earlier in the season.
Faried ended with 12 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 130-105 victory over the Kings.
Faried returned after missing three straight games with a knee injury, recording 12 points and 11 rebounds in 21 minutes. It was initially thought Faried would miss Tuesday's game to ensure his availability for Wednesday. Surprisingly, Faried was in action and rewarded those owners who may have streamed him in. Given the reports, there is a decent chance he misses Wednesday's game against the Clippers with Nene likely to replace him in the lineup.
Faried (knee) is not expected to play Tuesday against the Kings, Adam Spolane of SportsRadio 610 in Houston reports.
The Rockets have been rather vague regarding Faried's status, but coach Mike D'Antoni commented Monday that he expects to have Nene available Tuesday night, while Faried will be back for Wednesday's game against the Clippers. Neither player is listed on the team's official injury report, however.
According to coach Mike D'Antoni, Faried (knee) will be out until the middle of next week, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

Faried will not play Tuesday against the Bucks due to a sore left knee, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports.
Faried has dealt with the issue on and off since joining the Rockets, but the team is likely just being cautious as the postseason approaches. Nene is expected to be active Tuesday, so he'll likely pick up some minutes at center behind Clint Capela.
Faried racked up 11 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks, and one assist in 24 minutes during Sunday's 113-90 win over the Pelicans.
Faried logged his 12th double-double through 22 appearances with the Rockets, bringing his season total to 14 through 34 games in 2018-19. The last time Faried accumulated at least that many double-doubles was back in 2015-16 (21 in 67 games), so it's safe to say his career has been revitalized since arriving in Houston.
Faried (knee) will play Friday against the Spurs, Salman Ali of ESPN 97.5 Houston reports.

Faried is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Grizzlies due to left knee soreness, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

Faried totaled three points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and three rebounds in 13 minutes during Wednesday's 106-104 loss to the Warriors.
Faried was essentially a non-factor, this after posting 16 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT), nine boards, one steal, and one block in 20 minutes during Monday's win over the Hornets. Despite recently missing five games with a hip injury, the 29-year-old big man has actually maintained decent value since the return of Clint Capela, though Faried is likely best reserved for use in deep leagues.
Faried (hip) will play in Monday's game against the Hornets, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Faried will miss five consecutive contests due to a left hip injury when all is said and done, but he'll provide the Rockets with a boost on the boards and in the scoring department upon his return. He's averaging 14.0 points and 9.6 boards over his previous 10 matchups.
