The 22-year-old will take his talents overseas after appearing in 76 games for the Bulls over the past two seasons before he was cut by the team earlier this month.

Blakeney will come off the bench Tuesday against the Raptors.

Blakeney has earned just three minutes in consecutive contests, this after being a healthy scratch during last Saturday's loss to the Heat.
