Yet another player leaves KKL


Forward Chang Jung-hsuan, who was listed on the 24-man roster of the Taiwan NT this year before being cut, has been released by Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor (KKL), the team said in a press release.

Local media reported that the 1.90-meter forward, who won the SBL's Most Improved Player award last season, will sign with Taiwan Mobile.

Chang became yet another player leaving the team this summer. Chen Ching-huan, Lin Chih-lung and Hung Ying-che have all signed with Taiwan Mobile. Wang Nan-kuei and Huang Chu-tao signed with Bank of Taiwan.

Only four players -- Kao Tien-lin, Shan Wei-fan, Hong Chi-chao and Lee Chun-wei -- from the roster last season remain with the team. New KKL head coach Hsu Chih-chao could be in deep trouble finding players.

A former MVP in the high school league HBL, Chang was named as the Most Improved Player of the SBL last season. At the same time, he led National Taiwan Normal University to its third consecutive UBA title and won the MVP.
