Former Shanghai Shark DJ White finally made his debut for the C’s on Wednesday night as speculation continues to grow as to whether the power forward is going to earn himself a second ten-day contract and perhaps even a deal that will tie him down for the rest of the 2013/14 NBA season.
In a very brief four-minute spell, White made 2 blocks and had 3 rebounds against Indiana as Boston won 83-81. The former Sharks big man is competing with Shavlik Randolph, who led the CBA in scoring during the regular season (32.5ppg) during the latter’s spell with the Foshan Longlions for what should be the final spot on the roster.
If White doesn’t make the cut and gets released, there are of course other avenues of overseas employment. The Puerto Rican league is popular with several former CBA imports (Randolph is an established player for teams there as is former Shark, Mike Harris) while South American leagues will also come calling if the opportunity appears.
