Jamaal Franklin recorded 58 points, 15 rebounds, 9 assists in China

Former NBA player Jamaal Franklin played an incredible game for the Sichuan Blue Whales in the Chinese Basketball Association.

The 6-foot-5 shooting guard recorded 58 points, 15 rebounds and 9 assists, though his team ended up losing the game.

Franklin, 26, was a second-round pick for the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2013 NBA Draft. The journeyman has now had stints in the NBA, the G League and with several teams in China.

Last month, he had a 44-point, 13-rebound game in which he shot 8-of-14 from long distance. Franklin is averaging 29.9 points and 9.6 rebounds per game, which both rank Top 25 in the league. Last season, he nearly averaged a triple-double.

Should he decide to come back to the United States, his G League rights currently belong to the Long Island Nets.
