Duhon sustained serious head and body injuries in October upon getting thrust onto a car's hood and hitting his head on the windshield.

Duhon had gotten into a verbal disagreement with a man in an Orlando parking garage. Matters escalated when the man climbed into his car and made a run for Duhon and his brother-in-law. Duhon, 31, has played nine seasons with Chicago, New York, Orlando and the Los Angeles Lakers.

After the Lakers waived him this summer, Duhon had been an unsigned free-agent. Bradbury of BDA Sports told Yahoo Sports, "Chris is ready to play again and wants to show everyone he's healthy. This is a great opportunity."
