Dacin, TM sign imports

Dacin Tigers and Taiwan Mobile signed their import players for the 2011-12 SBL season last week, Apple Daily reported.

Dacin signed 6-9 forward Noel Felix, the first SBL import with NBA experiences. Felix, who played for Seattle Sonics in 2005-06 season and averaged 1.5 points and 1.2 rebounds in 12 games, was quoted as saying that he had wanted to try out with several NBA teams but decided to stop waiting for those opportunities because of the extended NBA lockout.

Taiwan Mobile signed 6-10 forward Lorenzo Davis, who was quoted as saying that his priority is to help TM to make the playoffs.
