07:18 AM ET 10.15 | Free agent point guard Sebastian Telfair won't be opening the season in the NBA. [Telfair] has reached agreement on a one-year deal with Tianjin of the Chinese Basketball Association, his agent, Andy Miller, told Yahoo Sports. Telfair, 28, has played for seven NBA teams since making the leap out of high school as the 13th pick in the 2004 NBA draft. Telfair will have the chance to run Tianjin's offense and position himself for a return to the NBA in late February once the Chinese basketball season ends. "We wanted to make a move from a position of control, and allow Sebastian the chance to run a team this season before coming back [to the NBA]," Miller told Yahoo Sports on Monday night. Telfair will join another former first-round NBA pick, Shelden Williams, with Tianjin.

No one cares.....This mini-turd had the balls to 'demand' that he would only go to a playoff team, when he's done squat in his career, including NEVER being on a playoff team.....Smh....Enjoy. China

Well said.

Coming out of the draft. Telfair was telling everyone that he was going to be a all-star point guard. He was going to save the Trailblazers. His teammates will love playing for him.

Yeah how did that all work out? Telfair talked a better game then he played. He wouldn't listen to his coaches that tried to help him improve his game. Telfair knew it all.

The best thing he could do was sneak handguns on to team planes.
