Alexis Ajinca has decided to remain with SIG Strasbourg in France this season.
Ajinca had an 'NBA-out' clause in his contract and he's still interested in returning to the NBA eventually, but for now he wants to continue build on the past year's success overseas. Thanks in part to a strong effort during EuroBasket, Ajinca had drawn interest from the Jazz and Thunder.

Ajinca has career NBA averages of 3.1 points and 1.6 rebounds per game, playing limited minutes in four seasons with the Bobcats, Mavericks and Raptors. He was far more productive in France last year, scoring 15.3 points per game, and may spend the rest of his career overseas.

Alexis Ajinca has re-signed with SIG Strasbourg in France.
Ajinca, the No. 20 overall pick of the 2008 draft, will receive a one-year deal with the French club. Despite being a true 7-footer, Ajinca could never really catch on in the NBA, spending parts of three seasons with the Bobcats, Mavericks and Raptors. He's still just 24 years old.

The Knicks have added Alexis Ajinca to their free-agent wish list.
New York would only sign him to a one-year deal, and they're also looking for veteran frontcourt help from guys like Jeff Foster, Kurt Thomas or Aaron Gray. Ajinca is only 23 years old and has nice upside, as he can block shots and has 3-point range, but he needs to get stronger and improve his basketball IQ.

Raptors big man Alexis Ajinca is reportedly close to signing with the Spanish team Blancos de Rueda Valladolid.
Ajinca played a small role in Toronto last season, but the Raptors have an affordable $2.3 million team option for him next season. It is therefore likely that he'll need to negotiate an out-clause into any deal, though the Raptors could release him if they are so inclined.
