The Chinese Taipei Basketball Association announced that a total of 21 players have applied for the 2012 SBL Draft which will be held on August 1 in Taipei.
A pre-draft tryout is scheduled to be held on July 31 in Taipei.
Five players among the applicants appeared to be catching the most attention, including Sung Yu-hsuan, Lin Yao-tsung, Chou Po-hsun, Chang Chia-jung and Chiang Shih-feng.
Sung and Lin are on the roster of the second national team in this year’s Jones Cup tournament while Chang Chia-jung was on the best-five list in the University Basketball Association this year.
The most intriguing “prospect” is none other than 50-year-old Chung Hsiao-ping, an incumbent Taipei City councilor who always liked to say he is the record-holder for most three-point goals made in a single game in the university league’s second division.
And Chung was recommended by Pure Youth head coach Hsu Chin-tse. I have no idea why.
