The 33-year-old is the latest player, who signed with an overseas team towards the latter part of their career. He will now play in Fontvieille, Monaco.

Walker played in just nine NBA games last season with the Dallas Mavericks. He made just one start.
He averaged 8 points per game. Walker also averaged 1.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.2 steals, and 0.2 blocks per game.
The New York native was the 9th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. He then spent eight seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets organization.
He then played for the Boston Celtics and his hometown New York Knicks before the aforementioned stint with the Mavericks.
In his career in the league, he appeared in 750 games, including 697 starts. Walker averaged 19.3 points per game.
He also had 3.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.4 blocks per game.
