Ekpe Udoh has agreed to a one-year deal with Beijing Ducks in China, sources tell Eurohoops.

The one-time Turkish Airlines EuroLeague champion and former Utah Jazz player will become the highest paid import in CBA.

Udoh was also considering big multiyear offers from several EuroLeague powerhouses including Anadolu Efes but chose the Beijing Ducks in the end.

The 32-year-old won the 2016-17 EuroLeague with Fenerbahce Beko earning the Final Four MVP honors along the way. He then moved to the NBA and the Jazz for two seasons.
