Default Sonny Weems signs one year deal with European team (in Lithuania)

Euroleague.net reports:

Zalgiris Kaunas added some athleticism on the wings with the signing of Sonny Weems to a one-year deal. Weems (1.98 meters, 25 years old) will make his European basketball debut this season with the Lithuanian champs. He arrives from Toronto of the NBA, where he averaged 9.2 points and 2.6 rebounds last season over 59 games as a part-time starter. It was Weems’s third season in the NBA, where he has also played for Denver.

Can't blame him. I doubt he's made too much money (relatively, athlete-wise) so he needs to be working if there is going to be a lockout.

I see what you're saying but I doubt that. AP was so fundamentally sound as a role player. He hit that corner 3 with consistency, he actually manned the backup point pretty well, he was a decent wing defender, and a locker room leader. Weems is pretty much a poor man's Shannon Brown.

AP developed that game overseas. Once upon a time he couldn't even get an nba job.

Not saying that sonny has the potential to develop the exact same skills. But perhaps to carve out a niche for himself where he can be a genuine rotation player.

Good choice for him. Being with Raptors won't progress his career any faster.

Again, I do understand what you're saying, but I just feel like Sonny Weems has a lot less potential as a role player than AP had. I don't think that Weems in Europe would win a bunch of championships and MVP's over there like AP did. But yeah I can see him potentially getting better.

This. And he also has to keep working to try to impress NBA teams enough to get some sort of contract beyond one year at the minimum. If he sits this year with an NBA no-go season, he doesn't get the chance to 'prove anyone wrong'.
