Guangsha prefer Wafer over Alston

September 27, 2010

With Flip Murray expected to stay in the NBA this season, Zhejiang Guangsha has set their focus on signing one of either Von Wafer or Rafer Alston, according to hoopCHINA.com.

Wafer is currently signed with the Celtics, but it’s not certain he will be on their opening night roster.  The Celtics brought 17 players under contract into camp, a number which now stands at 16 after Oliver Lafayette was cut over the weekend.  With Delonte West brought on board earlier this month to solidify Boston’s backcourt rotation, Wafer is no longer a lock to make the team.  He is seen to be competing with former UMASS standout, Tony Gaffney.

If Wafer is cut, Zhejiang will move to formally negotiate a deal with him first.  If Wafer remains a Celtic, however, the team will move onto Plan B, which is Alston.  Alston and the team have held talks, but remain apart on salary.  Alston has reportedly decided that he will be playing in the CBA this upcoming season, and will come to China to work out with Guangsha at the end of the month.

Interesting that the team prefers Wafer to Skip, given that he’s somewhat of a cult hero over here because of his association with And1 and the Rockets.  After losing out on Flip Murray, looks like Zhejiang will be getting a decent NBA consolation prize.

Zhejiang GM: “We want an NBA star-level guard”

September 23, 2010

Zhejiang’s been all over the place the last few weeks, first throwing their names into the Quincy Douby race, then into rumors with Flip Murray and Rafer Alston.  Now, it appears as they’re going with any old NBA combo guard who’s currently unemployed, talking with both Cuttino Mobley and Jamaal Tinsley.

Zhejiang GM, Ye Xiangyu: ”We want an NBA star-level guard, but we won’t just blindly sign anybody.  We’ll definitely take a look both their attitude and ability.”

Yeah, right.  If this really is turning into an arms race to see who can get the best ex-NBA baller, I’m sure a mid-market team like Zhejiang would gladly take any one of those guys.  Otherwise, they wouldn’t be so vocal with their interest.

Whatever happens, with all of these ball-dominating guards coming over, somebody is going to be pissed when they’re left out from starting the CBA All-Star game.

Alston, noticing trend among shoot-first PGs, talks to Zhejiang

September 22, 2010

Allen Iverson, Steve Francis, Flip Murray and now Rafer Alston are all known to be talking to various CBA teams about playing in China next year.

According to this ESPN Star report, Alston is in discussions with Zhejiang.  The team’s GM, Ye Xiangyu, confirmed interest and shared that contact was made after Alston’s agent suggested the idea of playing in China to him.  Alston, like Francis, played with Yao Ming and the Rockets and is therefore widely known in China by both hardcore and moderate fans of the game.

Preferring to play in the NBA next year, Alston, who was suspended indefinitely by the Heat last March for reportedly going AWOL after being replaced in the starting lineup by Carlos Arroyo, finds himself without a contract or an invite to training camp one month before the season.

UPDATE: The Hoops Market says Alston is waiting for an offer from the Knicks.

Flip Murrary might wear a Flying Dragon uniform… whatever that is

September 22, 2010

According to NBC Sports, Ronald “Flip” Murray, who played last season with the Chicago Bulls and Charlotte Bobcats, is considering moving to China to wear a “Flying Dragons” uniform.

What team NBC is exactly referring to is unclear however, as nobody in the league  calls themselves the “Flying Dragons.”

For the sake of this post, I’ll roll with the peacock on this one.  The two sentence clipping is obviously short on analysis, but if we pay attention to the last phrase, we can start crack this mysterious case of the misnamed dragon:

“…if the money is right, don’t be shocked to see Flip in a Flying Dragons uniform.”

So, all we have to do is recall what team has a dragon on it’s uniform, and then we’ll know where Flip could be going.

There’s a problem with that, though: China really likes dragons.

China and the dragon, which is seen in Eastern Asian culture as a representation of power, auspiciousness, and overall awesomeness, go back thousands of years to the Zhou and Qin dynasties when they were a symbol of the emperor.  Not surprisingly, the dragon is considered to be the best of the 12 animals in Chinese zodiac, and people who are born under the year of the dragon are supposedly way more awesome than everyone else.

Today, the dragon remains very much ingrained in Chinese culture as a sacred, mythical creature and serves as the country’s unofficial national emblem.  LeBron James’ ill-fated Nike commercial, “Chamber of Fear,” was pulled off the air in China for being “blasphemous and insulting to national dignity” because among the many Chinese opponents LBJ defeated, two were dragons.

Not one, but two CBA teams, Jiangsu and Shanxi, that have dragons emblazoned on the front of their jerseys, making this elaborate puzzle of mistaken dragon identity even more complex.  And if you count Foshan’s hybrid Dragon-Lion crossbreed, that would make three teams with dragons.

Further confusing things, Murray was reportedly in discussions with Zhejiang last week, which is entirely a non-dragon team.

Sina Sports is speculating that the team in question is Shanxi.

Of course, as with every NBA free-agent looking to China, is dependent on whether or not Flip can find a deal with an NBA team this summer.  If this goes down though, Shanxi, who has that Stephon Marbury guy running the point, will undoubtedly sport the best combination of foreign talent in league history, while also becoming one of the league’s top draws at the ticket office.

Hope their Chinese teammates like playing defense and rebounding.
