    Maybe the team don't care about that what status he will be.. Zhou Qi is a world class talent.. He will be likely among guys likes of mercenary western imports.. He's NBA veteran by the way.. It seems Kai vs Zhou match up will be put early in their careers in NBL.. Good warm up match for Kai...

    He will end up as an SRP player and would most likely earn the biggest in NBL history. His last CBA contract was around 2M USD. I dont think the NBL could land Zhou unless their would be significant comprises and arrangement with the NBL. If ever Zhou will play in the NBL, we will have an idea on how much will be Kai's contract because he will serve as gauge for it. Zhou is way bigger name than Kai at this point of their careers but Kai has a way more solid fanbase than Zhou.

    On another news,
    ������ LIU ����

    The Brisbane Bullets have added the tallest player in NBL history to their roster, signing 7'5" Chinese national squad member Chuanxing Liu as a development player for #NBL22 ��. He was signed for way lower salary or possibly just max for development player.

    It's not about the pay for the nth time, it's the committee that approves the classification and is the one who assigns a "player value" , not the team.

    As an example the team that signs Zhou cannot classify him as a development player and claim his declared salary is peanuts , yet pay him huge under the table. if it's true he's still consider as a marquee level player like an open import , then even if he is classified as a SRP to avoid being counted in the salary cap, he will still be assessed a player value equivalent to a marquee player and should not exceed the 4 max per team

    It is not about any committee. It is always about the demands of a player and what they are willing to take as a salary. Zhou wont play in the NBL for development but he will play for money. Unless they pay him significant amount, he will surely take his ass elsewhere. His choices were the KBL and Bleague. Zhou wont be in the NBL for his NBA dream. He is beyond that.

    Your just focus on who will pay but majority of players would be after money specially if they have other options. Kai can demand and select his destination because he was in the demand. No committee can dictate his terms and that would be the same case with Zhou. Ray parks and kiefer wasnt bullied by the PBA because they have other options.

    NBL will be lucky if they get Zhou.. He has tons of supporters in China and expand the market in China.. NBL should create Weibo account for Chinese fans.. They land a big fish in the league...

    True.. Zhou Qi's situation is like Ray Parks of ours... He will play for money and new environment.. But what is happening in CBA right now? Some players now leaving in the league.. What i know, CBA is the best league in Asia, But why players leaving? If money is the issue eh i don't see players will leave like that because CBA pays players higher than B-League, PBA, NBL and KBL.. Is there any wrong with Yao Ming's leadership there?

    They could only land zhou if they will offer an amount that is equivalent to his value. He will surely not take anything less than 1MUSD per year. He might even ask for 2M same with what he earn in the CBA. No committee can dictate his price.haha it would be a demand and a compromise from the NBL. We dont know the issue behind it but for sure Zhou will still play for the highest money or the 2nd highest bidder. China has been clamping the techgiants in their country and that might be a possible cause of his departure. It would be a slapped on Zhou if he will take less than 1M.

    NBL's dilemma is that they cant attract players because they cant pay a lot. They are trying to increase their market so that they would be capable to attract big time players. Players dictate their value majority of the time and only those with limited option will be at the mercy of a committee.

    Kai 100k?hahaha tell that to news.com.au.lol

    Childress was an NBA reject. Delly doesnt have a lot of option in the NBA and wont have a lot of takers. He is already too old and would be after stability same with Pau Gasul who opted to go home than be a journey man. No player would take pay cuts if they have a lot of options and if the amount difference would be too significant. Both Zhou and Kai were single and wont worry about family. Kai taking pay cuts.haha tell that to EWP.

    BRP was always after money. He wont take any paycut. Paycuts are only for old players or those with limited options.lol

    No one is talking about the NBL commitee restricting how much a team is willing to pay a player in demand .
    All a committee does is assign a player value to regulate competive balance . A team for example cannot recruit 5 Zhou level players as imports , then have 4 marquee locals .
    There is a purpose for this review committee, and it's not about regulating pay ! For the Nth time. But regulating for a level playing field

    Go check adelaide's gm interview.haha Kai is not at mercy of NBL.they wont take a paycut. He was sought after by agents.haha that doesnt sound someone who will take paycuts and gm said he only landed with adelaide because it was better for his development. EWP has a trail of being great negotiators. It was multimillion dollar multiyear contract.haha if he was not earning millions he should be a development player.lol SRP baba earn 400k USD last season.

    Will Zhou accepts pay cut? Maybe he would go to B-League rather than take a pay cut there... Or he will do a pay cut, If NBL is good environment for him...

    It is a given fact that almost everyone gets a pay cut to be able to play in the NBL, It's very well documented historically that all the Tall Blacks stars sacrificed to stay home for availability, by signing in the NBL instead of Europe or elsewhere .
    The list of former and current national team players who took the pay cut is endless, Penny, Webster , Pero Dickel etc etc . Same is true for former and current Boomers, they all take pay cuts to play in the NBL

    Why would Kai take a pay cut? He was already in the USA, the suddenly he decided to play in AUS just to take a paycut?

    They would only take paycuts if they are from that country that is obvious. It is the same for OFW they go somewhere to earn bigger but would opt to go home if they could earn decent at home. No one on his right mind will go somewhere in a foreign place to take paycuts.lol that is stupid unless you gain something significant and you dont have other options same with maker.haha
