Cai Chen signs for Shanghai Sharks

A couple of days late on this one, but the Sharks have announced the signing of youth player, Cai Chen. The eighteen-year old forward will wear the no. 10 jersey.

Details are scarce from the club’s website but a casual search of the internet appears to reveal that┬áCai is a known entity in more learned basketball circles . A well-built, left-handed small forward who was initially a product of one of Guandong’s much vaunted youth teams, he spent time playing high school basketball in American before returning to China.

Though unlikely to play much, if at all this season, Cai will have been signed to keep a talented youth team player on the books at the Yuanshen but more crucially, away from the rosters of another CBA team.
