The Chinese Basketball Association appears to be on its way to conducting next season without foreign players, per reports, including Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.
Per Carchia, CBA shareholders have made their decision on disallowing foreign players moving forward, submitting to the General Administration of Sports for approval.
“If the proposal is approved, the CBA season will start without foreigners,” Carchia wrote.
As it stands, only a limited amount of foreign players are allowed on each team. It has not been determined if this rule applies just to next season, or if the change will be permanent.
The CBA was founded in 1995 and consists of 19 teams.
