Shanghai Sharks Rumors
Celtics forward Guerschon Yabusele, the 16th overall pick of last month’s NBA Draft, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association, according to a league source. With bonuses, Yabusele could make up to $1.5 million next season, the source said. The Celtics will still hold Yabusele’s NBA rights.
After playing in just four games for the Shanghai Sharks, former NBA point guard Delonte West is again looking for a new job after he was released. West, who last played in the NBA for the Dallas Mavericks in 2012, had signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Sharks worth nearly $500,000 that could have reached $1 million with incentives. The Sharks are owned by former NBA star Yao Ming.
