Hupu News on October 3 According to Sichuan media, the Sichuan Men’s Basketball Team has identified three foreign players. Among them, the former Tongxi team foreign player Hamad Haddadi will return in the new season; in addition, Taylor Hansbrough will continue Stay in the team; the third foreign aid is not yet known.
There are still two weeks before the opening of the 2020-21 CBA League. Each team has entered the final stage of preparation. In the new season, the CBA will register up to 4 foreign players. There is no limit on the number of replacements in the regular season, but the playoffs are not allowed. Rules for the introduction of new foreign aid or replacement of foreign aid, but due to the recent severe situation of the new crown epidemic abroad, CBA has formulated a foreign aid rule that can be called the most stringent in history, that is, if the foreign aid enters the country if the new crown test is positive, the foreign aid cannot participate in the new season League; if the foreign aid isolation period ends and the team tests positive after training with the whole team, the team will be disqualified for the new season.
Such strict regulations make all participating clubs very nervous, because if you are not careful, all previous efforts will be lost or even the whole team will be disqualified. This is a loss that no team can bear. Therefore, at present, all teams are extremely cautious when introducing foreign aid. Geng Jie, chairman of the Sichuan Jinqiang Club, said: "The foreign aid we choose must first have a recent nucleic acid test report, and a nucleic acid test before boarding the plane. After getting off the plane, we need to follow the process. Now we would rather stop for three minutes than grab a second. Even if some games in the early part of the season are participating in the Chinese class, we must ensure the safety of the players. And the smooth progress of the league."
According to Geng Jie, due to the complicated immigration procedures of foreign aid and the long isolation period, most of the foreign aid of CBA teams cannot keep up with the pre-season matches. A small foreign aid is in the process of review and approval. Relatively speaking, Hansbrough and the small foreign aid are more troublesome to enter, and an invitation letter from the Provincial Sports Bureau is needed. From the current point of view, Haddadi should be the fastest to catch up. Arrived and reunited with the team." This season Sichuan team has the advantage of five foreign players in four quarters. If the foreign players can arrive smoothly, then the Sichuan team will have a strong combat effectiveness.
