    Default Chinese Taipei NT 2016 - 2019

    Taiwan Beer head coach Yanchia Hua was named as the coach of the national team for this year's 2016 Jones Cup and the FIBA Asia Challenge. Immediately, after his assignment, Yanchia told the press that he plans to meet with the CTBA, Taiwan's basketball federation in creating a training program for the NT all the way to the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

    According to rumors, Quincy Davis is out of the NT picture as the naturalize player and one foreign player being eyed as the new naturalized player is John Florveus, who is 211cm and is only 25 years old. Florveus fits the ideal age that the CTBA wanted earlier for their new naturalize player that can only mature with the team.

    Yanchia Hua also hinted that this year's Team A will be younger as opposed to the veteran squad that we have been seeing for a number of years.

    Talking about rebuilding, finding a successor to Lin Chih-Chieh and the other ageing guards & swingmen won't be much of a problem. Taiwan, I believe, will never run out of good quality shooting guards & swingmen. But finding replacements for big men Tseng Wen Teng & Tien Lei would be the real problem, in my opinion.

    True. I'm hoping Hu Long Mao can fill the void for the 4 Position, sure thing it will be a hell of a task.

    Looking forward to seeing a battle between Lin Ting-chien and Kobe Paras in the future.
    At last, the New Jedi Order has returned!
    They shall liberate Philippine basketball
    from the clutches of the Evil Empire
    and carry on the dream of reaching the world.

    Just read that Wen-Ting, Tien Lie, Yang Chin-min, and Liu Cheng will banner the 15-man list for their WJC to FIBA Asia Challenge campaign. Are there any news with their reinforcement/naturalized?

    My bets for the other spots are:

    Forward:
    Chou Po-Chen
    Hu Long-mao
    Chou Yi-Hsiang
    Lin Chih-wei
    Lu Cheng-Ju

    Guard:
    Chen Ying-Chun
    Jet Chang
    Peng Chun-Yeng


    There still lots of talents out there. It's just that the names are so !@#$%^ hard to memorize. haha.

    Not a bad size for a "stretch-4" in the Asian level.

I think he did well in that tournament averaging 7.7 pts./game. But since then I haven't seen him play for either Taiwan national team A or B in the Jones Cup or last year's FIBA Asia Championship.

    I wonder why he has yet to break into the Taiwanese national team A roster considering that veteran big men like Tien Lei & Tseng Wen Ting are not getting any younger. I mean Hu Long Mao is already 24. He should be ripe for the Taiwanese national "elite" team already. He needs international game experience.

    He played on TPE Team B Last 2014 WJC. I like the guy, I see him as Ranidel De Ocampo of Taiwan. Haha.

    I read an article about him and state that he will try his luck in Australia & *I forgot the other one*, before entering SBL.

    Then who do you think can get the job done? From Last SBL Season, there are quite guys for the spot but haven't seen a promising one.

    John Florveus at 211cm runs the floor very well and can shoot the mid-range with a high release. Really improved since his playing days in the Japanese league with Tokyo Cinqreves where he was strictly a post player. We'll see him in the Jones Cup.

    I hope he has a high rebounding rate and change block shots, because that will be his main goal. Essentially an SBL import for the national team.

    That was the main contribution of Quincy Davis in 2013. This Florveus fellow looks a bit lanky and may need to add more muscle to survive inside.

    Taiwan Beer's Yu Huan-Ya will miss the Jones Cup due to a fractured hand. Still, there are still a number of (young) PG that ROC-A can call upon.

    I think the following:

    17yr old Wu Pei-Chia 206cm
    17yr old Jonah Morrison 206cm
    20yr old Jung Yi-Shen? 203cm
    23yr old Fan Shi-Ehn 200cm

    Quincy Davis signed a 1+1 contract provision after meeting the expectation of the CTBA during the Jones Cup. Davis is booked for the FIBA Asia Challenge and next year's clause is slightly guaranteed.

    Tang Wei-Chieh of the recent U17 team bound for the US HS. He joins the wave of Chen Shen-Chieh, Wang Lu-Hsiang and Lin Ting-Chien to integrate into the US.
