The new season of CBA is about to begin. Looking back at this crazy offseason, Beijing Shougang can be said to have been full of rewards. On September 23, Beijing time, according to domestic media reports, Shougang has reached a contract renewal agreement with the big foreign aid Justin Hamilton.
For the past 3 seasons, Hamilton has been playing for the Beijing team. In the 2019-20 season, he was unable to return to the team after the rematch due to the epidemic. He played in 20 games and averaged 21.5 points and 10.4 rebounds. The big guy's scoring ability has always been online. In the 2017-18 season, he once staged 18-for-18 in a single game, scoring 42 points.
It is worth mentioning that Dahan is currently the only foreign aid in the Shougang formation. In the list of priority renewal rights for foreign aid announced earlier by CBA, Shougang gave up the use of priority renewal rights for Jeremy Lin. At that time, Hamilton and Youdo also did not have this right.
According to the new foreign aid policy for the 2020-21 season, each team can register 4 foreign aids at the same time, and the salary cap for foreign aid is 7 million US dollars. Not using priority renewal rights means that Shougang can re-negotiate a contract with the three with a salary less than or equal to last season's contract, so that the team has more room to operate on signings.
In the 2019-20 season, Shougang scored 32 wins and 14 losses in the regular season, and finally ranked fourth in the league. In the playoffs, they successfully reached the semi-finals, and they were out of the game against Guangdong in 3 games. With Yi Jianlian's injury, next season's CBA is destined to be a situation where the group will play together. Shougang will also decisively take action during the offseason.
They first won the Shenzhen general Li Muhao, and the two sides signed a 5-year regular (Type C) contract. After the contract expires, Beijing Men's Basketball has the exclusive right to sign the maximum salary of Li Muhao. In the 2019-20 season, Li Muhao averaged 11.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game.
After that, the Beijing team intercepted Hu Fan Ziming. As a bargaining chip, they sent Zhao Yanman and Sun Haofeng to Guangzhou Longshi. At present, Fan Ziming's rookie (Type A) contract has the last one year left, and Shougang has the priority to renew his contract. According to domestic media, the transfer fee for introducing Fan Ziming is estimated to be over 30 million.
In addition to signing in, Shougang also completed the contract renewal work well. They reached a 3-year maximum salary renewal with Fang Shuo, and at the same time renewed Liu Xiaoyu with a 2+1 Type C contract. Zhou Yixiang, who had previously been on loan for players, officially joined and reached a 3-year Type C contract with the team.
首钢除了签约外，还很好地完成了合同续签工作。他们与方硕续签了3年的最高薪资，同时又以2 + 1 Type C合同续签了刘晓宇。以前一直租借给球员的周义祥正式加入并与车队达成了为期3年的C型合同。
In this offseason, Shougang has strengthened the originally weak inside line on the basis of maintaining the core lineup. Coupled with the return of the big man, they already have a luxurious inside line combination. The next reinforcement direction should be small foreign aid.
Shuhao's departure made the team lose an offensive brain, but Shougang still has many options. Previously, it was reported that they had intentionally introduced the former Tongxi small foreign aid Joseph Yang, but it was a pity that they were eventually intercepted by Beijing Enterprises. But Fogg, another scoring madman, has no contract now. Should Shougang think about it?
Fogg played for Beijing Control last season, averaging 27 points, 6.3 rebounds and 6.3 assists in the regular season, ranking No. 2 in the scoring list and No. 6 in the assists list. After leaving Beijing Enterprises, Fogg said: "My CBA journey has not reached the end, and I will continue to work hard." He can score and assist, and may be a good candidate for Shougang's small foreign aid.
