In a surprise move, the Eagles announced the signing of guard Lester Hudson, according to Sohu Sports. Hudson, who was drafted by the Boston Celtics with the 60th pick of the 2008 NBA Draft, came over to Guangdong Hongyuan mid-season last year after the team parted ways with Fred Jones. The move paid off — with the help of Hudson, Guangdong won its fourth straight championship. In the same stroke, Qingdao also has cut ties with center Jarron Collins, who they had signed in the end of October. As for a reason, head coach Jiang Zhengxiu said simply that he “wasn’t the type of player we needed.” According to Sohu, the team is in discussions with five-year NBA pro and former lottery pick, Ike Diogu. Diogu played for the Los Angeles Clippers last season averaging 5.8 points and 3.2 rebounds in just over 13 minutes a game. NiuBBall.com

He realized that his time with the Wizards was about to come to an abrupt end when he got a phone call on Monday morning asking him to come in and meet with Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld and vice president of basketball administration Tommy Sheppard. So when he sat down and they told him that he was getting waived, Hudson wasn't shocked. "I knew it was going to be something," Hudson said before leaving the arena for the last time. "The last couple of days, I had a feeling about something. I don't know if it was a good thing or a bad thing. And it was this." Washington Post

Grunfeld and Sheppard gave Hudson some words of encouragement, telling him that he belongs in the NBA and should find his way back in due time. Placed in this position last season, Hudson had to earn his keep in the NBA Developmental League, but Hudson said he hadn't considered that option just yet. "I don't know about the D-League. I don't think it's on my mind right now. Might be D-League, but it depends," Hudson said. Washington Post

The Wizards have completed a somewhat startling reunion, as the team has brought back swingman Alonzo Gee, according to multiple league sources. In order to make the move possible, the Wizards waived reserve point guard Lester Hudson. Washington Post

Gee received a non-guaranteed deal with the Wizards, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. The team would have until early January to determine whether or not to keep him for the rest of the season. The source added that Gee's signing is not related to the health of Josh Howard, who has yet to play this season while recovering from left knee surgery. Howard is still on schedule to come back some time in December. Washington Post

They still have a qualifying offer out for Cartier Martin, who played well at summer league and is expected to get a training camp invitation. Lester Hudson is also likely going to audition for a spot when the team convenes in late September. The team rescinded a qualifying offer for Cedric Jackson last week, making him an unrestricted free agency. It is also still undecided about signing second-round pick Hamady N'Diaye. "We're working on finalizing the last couple of spots on the roster," Grunfeld said. "We have a couple of months to do that. We're going to see which opportunities are available to us, which players are available to us and then we'll act accordingly. Washington Post
