NBA to China

  1. Kenyon Martin is out, but don’t expect exodus from China

    CBA 11/12 First Round: Guangdong Hongyuan v Zhejiang Chouzhou

    Kenyon Martin has been the trail blazer, showing the path out of China back to the NBA. But the path isn’t that appealing — you can’t sign to play anywhere else until the Chinese season ends, which is mid-February at the earliest and the playoffs go until late March. And you stop getting paid. So…

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Some of the biggest names in the NBA — Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade and others — are looking hard at China. There are good reasons for this. First, there is good sponsorship money there (and companies like Nike might help pay to get stars in the world’s largest shoe market). Also, the league doesn’t start…

According to the fantastic Chinese league blog…

  4. While in China, ‘Melo and Chris Paul say they’d play there

    Chris Paul

    What else did you expect them to say? Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul have been good soldiers for the NBA players union, officially keeping the door open to them playing overseas if the lockout drags on. Leverage baby! Even though for CP3 he’d be risking injury while on the cusp of a huge free agent…

  5. Howard says there is a “huge possibility” he plays overseas

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    There is a lot of risk in Dwight Howard playing overseas during the lockout — he has two years, $37.5 million on his existing deal that can be wiped out if he gets injured. What’s more, he has said he is going to opt out of that last year, meaning he would be a free…

  6. Dwight Howard would choose China over Europe?

    Dwight Howard

    This is a hypothetical exercise, Dwight Howard is not going to play overseas. He may say he is open to it but there is only in infinitesimal chance Dwight Howard would actually lace up the Adidas. The fact is he is on the verge of a huge new contract — the max under whatever the…
