    Default CBA 2017-18 season

    Jonas Kazlauskas will replace former player Du Feng to coach Guangdong this upcoming season. Kazlauskas has reportedly brought his entire coaching staff over. His former player Zhu Fangyu who has been named president of basketball operations will give him free rein. Du Feng will leave the team and focus on his national team duties.

    The Lithuanians he brought over are: Rolandas Jarutis, Sigitas Kavaliauskas.

    According to reports, Luis Scola will sign with Shanxi and it's a big contract similar to Andray Blatche's scale with Xinjiang.

    What is the CBA salary cap structure? Why aren't we seeing giant contract offers to NBA level players similar to how chinese football has raided europe?

    The CBA is currently raiding Europe too. You can't compare basketball to soccer because Americans don't watch much soccer, otherwise the best soccer players won't play in Europe or China either.

    What do you mean?

    I am just wondering why the shanghai sharks dont offer large 20-30 million dollar contracts to nba players, similar to how shanghai offered Hulk a bunch of money to play soccer/football in china.

    So I cant find anything more recent than 2009 but then it was:

    The Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) on Wednesday announced the monthly salary of foreign players was not allowed to go above $60,000, the first time a cap had been placed on players' incomes.
    The rule extends to the national team where the players and coaches cannot earn more than 1 million yuan ($146,000) per annum. The CBA also said the total salary for players and coaches should be below 55 percent of a club's revenue. Chinese club players will also feel the pinch as their yearly income will not exceed 300,000 yuan ($44,000).

    Reports claim the CBA's new rules have come into effect as it was rumored some big-spending clubs were ready to pay $1 million to attract world-class players for the new season. Another reason touted is that some conservative officials believe the massive import of overseas players last season decreased local players' playing time on the court.

    "We are going to develop the CBA's professionalism, regulate CBA clubs' management and marketing and control their revenue," said a CBA statement. "We also hope to protect the interest of clubs, players as well as coaches."
    So if that is still in effect in some way it explains why no huge contracts.
