Smush Parker, the Vipers' first-round selection in the 2008 D-League draft, has signed to play for a team in China, RGV coach Clay Moser said Thursday afternoon from the D-League Showcase in Orem, Utah.

It's likely Parker, who two years ago started for the Los Angeles Lakers and has played in 286 NBA regular season and postseason games, was hoping to use the Showcase as a vehicle to receive another shot in the NBA. But in two games in Orem, both 20-plus point losses for the Vipers, Parker shot 9-of-23 from the field (39 percent) and averaged 11.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 6.5 turnovers per game.

Parker is believed to have signed with Guangdong of the Chinese Basketball Association, a little over two weeks after Vipers power forward Kendall Dartez left the team to play in China.


Bonzi Wells is already there.

This guy is a failure.

All he had to do in LA was make open shots and don't turn the ball over.

Wait... This guy was starting for the Los Angeles Lakers, guarding the MVP Steve Nash in the playoffs, now he can't even find a job in the NBA?

Come on... he was the starter for a playoffs team. He must have been good or was Kobe just that amazing?

The only shame is that after he gets to China, he's still Smush Parker.

He and Kwame Brown carried that Laker team. Great inside-outside combo. Kobe was ok.

Actually, he did both those reasonably well in LA. All he had to do that he didn't was have a good attitude and actually try.
