In the aftermath of the series, several players were fined for their actions but Wafer has taken the brunt of the punishment following his foul on Luo and then the throwing of the chair afterwards. Not only was he fined 50,000 RMB (roughly $8,000), he has also been given a six-game ban from all CBA games. It is the ban that presents the biggest problem for the American. Given that the CBA regular season is so short, the absence of a star overseas player like Wafer for that many games is a huge disadvantage.
Wafer was forced into this very public statement after Shanxi’s 106-98 road loss to Qingdao in the CBA playoff quarter-finals. The result ensured that the Dragons were eliminated from the postseason without winning a game. However, it was Wafer’s actions during the third and final game of the series that have captured the headlines. With Shanxi staring at elimination, the guard was ejected for hard fouling Qingdao point guard Luo Xudong. Then, as he was sent from the court, Wafer picked up a chair and threw it against a wall before exiting through the player’s tunnel.
Miami has recently expressed interest in a number of free agents including Von Wafer, Julyan Stone, Vander Blue, Yakhouba Diawara, Larry Drew II, Je’Kel Foster and Justin Holiday among others, according to sources close to the situation. All of these players recently worked out for the HEAT. Miami may bring in several other free agents for additional workouts in the coming days.
