Free agent power forward Ekpe Udoh has agreed to a contract with the Beijing Ducks of the Chinese Basketball Association, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.

Udoh, 32, spent each of the previous two seasons with the Utah Jazz. He appeared in 51 games this past season, but averaged just 6.3 minutes.

He was drafted by the Golden State Warriors with the No. 6 overall draft pick in 2010, and while Udoh has not lived up to expectations in the NBA, he's put together a strong career overseas.

Udoh last played internationally in 2016-17, when he averaged 20.7 points and 7.8 rebounds with Turkish club Fenerbah├že and was named EuroLeague Final Four MVP.
