Ty Lawson Signs With Lithuanian Team

Ty Lawson has apparently signed with BC Zalgiris in Lithuania.

This tweet is from the team's official Twitter:

NBA starting PG joins us! BC Zalgiris signed Ty Lawson from Denver Nuggets till the end of NBA lockout!!!

And this from Sonny Weems who also signed with the club with a no out-clause earlier this month:

Looks like me and the little homie will be on the same team this year again!!

From what I understand Lawson's contract will have an out-clause so he can return to the NBA when the lockout ends. The amount of money involved is said to be in the seven-digit range. The details are still very thin, but I certainly didn't expect this.
