O.J. Mayo is getting set to play in China for the CBA's Liaoning Flying Leopards once the league eventually resumes play, according to ESPN's Kevin Wang.

Mayo, who is currently in a mandated 14-day quarantine in Shenyang, China, will need to be medically cleared and file paperwork with the league before he's able to play.

The third overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, Mayo is slated to join a Flying Leopards roster that currently features former NBA players Lance Stephenson and Brandon Bass.

Over the course of eight seasons before being dismissed and disqualified from the NBA for violating the league's anti-drug program in 2016, Mayo averaged 13.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.9 assists.

The CBA has been suspended since January due to the coronavirus pandemic. While an official return date hasn't been announced yet, it was reported last week the league is targeting restarting play in May.
