Jonny Flynn PG DET 6 Months
Flynn has signed with Orlandina Basket in Italy, the team's official site reports.
Flynn last played in the NBA in 2011-12 with the Rockets. He's been considered a bust for the better part of his career, but at 25 years old, there's always a chance he could find his way back to the NBA at some point.

Jonny Flynn will sign in China to play with Sichuan Blue Whales.
He couldn't cut it in July during NBA Summer League at 24 years old, so it's hard to imagine him making it back to play with the big boys again. Unfortunately, Flynn's claim to fame was being selected one pick before Stephen Curry in the 2009 NBA Draft.

Jonny Flynn will play for the Clippers in Vegas Summer League.
He was with the Pacers in Orlando and didn't look too bad. If he plays well, he could wind up as a third point guard on an NBA team. Pacers' Summer League player Christian Watford will head to Vegas to play with the Mavs.

GM David Kahn defended his decision to draft Jonny Flynn sixth overall in the 2009 draft.
Flynn, who did not play in the NBA this season despite being just 24 years old, is still trying to get back to the league. Kahn said the team knew Ricky Rubio wouldn't come over in his first year, which may or may not be true, and according to Kahn, "the scouts had Flynn as the No. 1 point guard." Jonathan Givony of Draft Express reports that Rubio had come right away to Minny had the team not drafted Flynn.

The Bobcats are expected to target Jonny Flynn to help fill out their roster before the end of the season, according to Peter Vecsey.
Flynn spent part of this year playing in Australia and reportedly drew interest from the Lakers and Grizzlies at some point this season. Despite being the No. 6 overall pick just five years ago, Flynn is no more than an end-of-the-bench player at this point in the NBA.

ESPN's Marc Stein reports that the Lakers could consider Jonny Flynn or Mike James in addition to Delonte West.
Flynn is playing in Australia while James is working out and waiting for an opportunity, but someone like Eddie House is an option as well. Stein adds that the Lakers would like to trade for Jose Calderon, but the Raptors want to include Calderon in a bigger trade if possible. Any PG going to the Lakers is going to have to navigate some choppy waters.

Jonny Flynn has signed with the Melbourne Tigers in Australia.
The No. 6 overall pick of the 2009 draft couldn't even find a bench to latch onto. It's not a promising sign for Flynn's NBA future, but he's young enough where he could resurface eventually.

Pistons waived G Jonny Flynn.
Flynn, like Terrence Williams, never really stood a chance of making the final roster. Perhaps David Kahn, who drafted Flynn with a top 10 pick and has always had an affinity for PGs, will kick his tires.

Jonny Flynn has agreed to a non-guaranteed contract with the Pistons.
Flynn, the No. 6 overall pick of the 2009 draft, couldn't land a guaranteed deal after playing with three teams in his first two seasons. The Pistons have 15 guaranteed contracts, so Flynn will have to make a sizable impression in training camp to stick around. He won't have any fantasy value even if he makes the team.
