Lin Chih-lung to sign with Taiwan Mobile

Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor's operational crisis has worsened after guard Lin Chih-lung said he will sign with Taiwan Mobile next season.

As many as 10 players on the teams have either signed with other teams or said they would leave the team that failed to reach .500 in the last three years.

Lin, who averaged 5.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists last season with KKL, said he didn't see his future with the team and that was why he decided to leave. He will join Chen Ching-huan, KKL's second-leading scorer last season at 18.3 behind Shawn Hawkins, in Taiwan Mobile.

Taiwan Mobile needs backcourt depth if starting point guard Su Yi-chieh opts to play in China next year, new head coach Chia Fan said, adding that the departure of veteran point guard Chen Huei, who will retire and work as an assistant coach next season, could make the point guard position very thin.
