The Toronto Raptors announced on Monday the signing of guard Will Solomon, who will try to make a return to the NBA after spending the past six years playing basketball overseas. 

Solomon, 30, has spent the past two seasons with Fenerbahce Ulker, an Istanbul team in the Turkish league. He averaged 17.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 4.4 assists last season.

Prior to that, the Hartford, Conn., native played in Greece and Israel.

Solomon previously played one season in the NBA with the Memphis Grizzlies. He averaged 5.2 points in 62 games in his rookie season with Memphis after being selected by the team in the second round, 33rd overall, of the 2001 NBA draft.

Solomon was a standout in college with Clemson, finishing as a sophomore with 20.9 points per game to lead the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring in 1999-2000. The following year he averaged 19.7 points and left school with a year of eligibility remaining to enter the NBA draft.
