ESPN is reporting that High School point guard Emmanuel Mudiay will play in China during the upcoming season.

Mudiay, who had committed to play at SMU over Kentucky and Kansas, will instead sign a one-year deal worth more than $1 million.

"He'll be able to athletically overwhelm other players in China, but the key with him will be socially," a coach who was previously in China told "That won't be easy."

The 6-foot-5 Mudiay, considered a one-and-done possibility and a potential No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, is concerned about amateurism issues and not academics or financial stability, a source told SMU had accepted Mudiay academically.
Mudiay is rated as No. 1 point guard in the nation, and the No. 2 overall player for 2014, according to 24/7 Sports.
