Lin Chih-chieh heads for China


One day after CTBA cleared the way for Taiwanese players, Taiwan Beer announced that Lin Chih-chieh will go to China for a tryout with two CBA teams next week, local media reported.

Lin, accompanied by TB head coach Yen Chia-hua and marketing director Chen Jian-chou, will participate in tryouts for Shanghai and Zhejiang. The group is scheduled to leave for China next Monday and be back to Taiwan next Thursday.

Playing time will be the crucial factor of Lin's signing, Yen said, since every player wants to play.

According to Yen, Lin Chih-chieh will definitely spend his next season in China and Taiwan Beer will sign a pair of veterans -- Wu Chia-lung and Shin Jin-jan -- to fill Lin's void on the wing.
