Forced to wait a year to enter the NBA Draft, No. 1-ranked high school guard Emmanuel Mudiay has decided to play professionally in China instead of going to college, according to Business Insider.



Mudiay signed a one-year, $1.2-million contract with the Guangdong Southern Tigers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. He's also insured in case he gets injured.

Since the NBA instituted a rule in 2006 that players can only enter the draft if they are one year removed from high school, few top prospects have opted to play professionally overseas.
