Barron signed a one-year contract Saturday with Toyama Grouses of the Basketball Japan League, the Japan Times reports.
The 35-year-old Barron has logged 140 career appearances at the NBA level with the Heat, Knicks, Suns, Bucks, Trail Blazers, Warriors, Wizards and Suns, last appearing in the league during the 2014-15 campaign. Given his age, it's likely that Barron will wind his career down overseas before heading into retirement.
Barron was waived by Atlanta Saturday, Chris Vivlamore of AJC.com reports.
