    China must be the place to go now

    DongGuan, interested in Jamaal Tinsley, signs Jackson Vroman

    After the signing of Vroman, Tinsley is the next target of the Chinese team
    Jackson Vroman is finally a new player of the DongGuan New Century Leopards. According to the Chinese media, the 29-year-old American center, with Lebanese passport, has been signed by the CBA team. Vroman arrives to China after playing last season in Iran of Mahram.
    The next target of DongGuan is another former NBA player, Jamaal Tinsley. The 32-year-old guard, a free agent after finishing last season in the Memphis Grizzlies, could join Vroman in the Chinese team. Tinstey averaged 3.5 points and 2.8 assists per game with the Grizzlies.

    The Lebanese passport/citizenship is interesting.

    You can only have a certain number of Americans on Chinese teams. So it's probably a way to get around it.

    I have a friend who has been to China several times and he said you'd be shocked at the number of people who play basketball there. It's huge.

    Stinson will most likely end up in China as well.

    Wow, that's interesting. I was at the Cyclone Club lunch thing at Hickory Hall two weeks ago and he was there and said he'll probably play for the Energy this year.
    Maybe the money is just leaps better over there.

    Yeah I think you can only have one American on the floor at a time. I read an interview with former Providence PG God Shamgod and his team was talking about getting Iverson and he was saying he was disappointed that they wouldn't be able to be on the floor together if he did sign there.

    Money is wayyy better over in China and I had heard he was in contact with a team over there. The D-League money is less than stellar. But who knows, maybe Curtis has reconsidered and wants to be closer to family and hang here in Des Moines.. and hope to get a 10-day contract this year from the NBA. Unfortunately his NBA clock is dwindling. It'd be nice if someone gave him a shot.

    Spot on Brent. I was thinking the same thing about the NBA clock. I think his knees have seen a lot a miles too.
