    This is good to know, the writer however conveniently failed to mention that the CBA has a provision for "Asian Imports" (like Abbas) which is different from the open import classification. His statement therefore of " Offers to play there as imports usually land on the laps of Americans or Europeans" is actually misleading.

    Here is the rule from their league rule book

    Every team can register up to two non-Asian foreign players. Additionally, the worst five teams from the previous season can register an a third Asian foreign. An Asian player must have a valid passport from a registered FIBA Asia country and cannot be a dual citizen.

    I hope Castro accepts. We need players to look beyond PBA and grow as a player. Although he has announced that he has retired with gilas, this will hopefully open up opportunities for other world class ball players in PH.

    PBA instead of growing and transition to an open league has become very inclusive and is on a decline (or dying)

    sometimes I can't help to imagine that the reason why china got the services of douthit and blatche as imports is to familiarize themselves on these players' moves and tendencies on the court and learn how to neutralize them. besides the overweight issue, blatche was so checked in china game last fiba asia. and now they want castro... hmmm...

    On point!

    Knowing how sneaky, underhanded, and outright blatant as far as how China operates to gain the advantage goes, your imagination might likely be reality.

    Castro should pack his sack of salt in earnest on his way to a basketball career in China if his common sense guides him well.

    I find it interesting that the CBA has the following rule " With the exception of the Bayi Rockets, who are not allowed to have imports because of their affiliation with the People’s Liberation Army, every team can register up to two non-Asian foreign players"
    It's interesting to me cause , it shows their emphasis on developing local talent for their national team. Imagine if the PBA had a team that was exclusively local that could play in the Import conference. That would help the NT, of course that's only if the commissioner actually wanted to help the NT

    With him most likely sitting out the Philippine Cup due to this matter, i think TNT Katropa should go after Kiefer Ravena if he would not be drafted / applying for the NBA Dleague Draft. Kris Rosales was a good signing by them i think he should be their main man like what he did for Singapore in the ABL

    Only problem Castro's camp sees is that they know that TNT wants to win another PBA All-Pinoy title again so bad. CBA conflicts with AFC.

    Source of my story said Jason "very interested in playing there," and that TNT wants to assure that CBA team takes care of Castro.

    Could have played in Australia/Singapore but didn't happen. I wish that this time, Castro in China would happen.

    3 out of the 5 worst CBA teams last season already signed their asian imports.

    Foshan - Bahrami
    Jilin - Kamrani (avg. 19.5 ppg last CBA season)
    Jiangsu - Abbas

    Thus leaving Bayi and Tianjin. Bayi of course cant sign any imports so that leaves us with Tianjin who coincidentally is being coached by Rajko Toroman. About a month ago there were also reports of June Mar being eyed by a CBA team which I would also assume it to be the same team thats interested in Castro.

    Castro has a better resume and more consistent. If he plays well, which I think he will, it will open up opportunities for other players.

    Does china have tier 2 league? similar to pcbl and dleague?

    The way TNT is playing with little contribution from Little , they can be called the Bayi Rockets of the PBA . Actually the TNT team can be the designated PBA team reserved to reinforce the Cadet NT, sort of like the "Army National reserves"
