    The article actually says nothing will can happen until he's done with his CBA contract.

    But, I'm relying on the site's translation abilities, which might be problematic

    After two seasons, in 2014-15 his takeoff came: 12 points and 6 rebounds on average in almost 29 minutes per night with a good 37% from the line of three. But in January she had to stop short due to her back problems, hernia operation included, which have played a key role in her career has not grown since then.​

    Yeah that was my problem too, I don't like relying on translations when I'd have no way of knowing if it is an accurate translation or not. That said, it sounds reasonable that nothing can happen till he's done with his CBA contract and I imagine that runs out either when his team is out or when the finals are over.

    He can't play, yet. I was just playing dumb for the jokes.

    fwiw: Per FIBA rules, players under contract for teams in FIBA-sanctioned league (NBA included) cannot switch leagues unless FIBA receives a letter of release from the team who holds the contract.

    Without clearance from Shandong, DMo must wait until they lose. So, it's unlikely he (or any player making the Finals) can latch onto an NBA playoff team before the deadline. They really got screwed by the stupid one-month break in the schedule February, between regular season and start of playoffs.

    Yeah, NBA would've been a viable option if his team DID NOT make the playoffs.

    Would he be eligible tho? What are the rules (on how many regular season games should he play, if that's important)?

    I am pretty sure his agent explored that option, but he only can finde team in Europe as of today.

    can someone translate that for me? I’m guessing it’s something like “if you’re afraid of sunburn don’t go on the lawn tractor” . . .

    D-mo is cutting grass, while waiting for his corn to grow, guess next is the horse farm. We have to send him cowboy hat.

    Maybe he's trying out the Gerald Green way of getting back into the NBA... Go do some yard work and your agent will call you with an offer from the Houston Rockets!

    You'd think with that massive, under the table payment he got from the NBA he could hire someone to mow the lawn.

    He is clearly not too good for getting down and dirty. Down to earth and soil.

    It must really suck knowing that you're CBA season is over, your teammate Ty Lawson got picked up by the Wizards and was instrumental in the Playoffs, and your former team is in title contention

    At least he still got his rights
