The 2020-21 CBA League will kick off on October 17th, and the teams are also making their final preparations before the start of the season. For Guo Shiqiang and his Guangzhou team, they have recently ushered in a piece of good news. The team’s three major foreign players have now come to China. They are undergoing quarantine and will be able to rendezvous with the team after the quarantine period expires.
Due to the epidemic, the teams have been very cautious in signing foreign aid this summer. Even if some teams have signed strong foreign aid, they cannot guarantee that they can provide immediate combat power for the team due to immigration reasons. In this case, the Guangzhou team's three foreign aids can all be in place, undoubtedly injecting a boost to the team.
The three foreign players for the Guangzhou team in the new season are Dallas Moore, Isaac Haas and Marlis Speights. Among them, Moore is a guard, Haas serves as a center, and Speights can serve as the fourth or fifth position.
Moore, born in 1994, is 1.85 meters tall. He studied at the University of North Florida in college and averaged 23.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game in his senior season. Like many players, Moore also has NBA dreams. He played in the Summer League for the Denver Nuggets in the 2017-18 season, averaging 9.3 points and 1.7 rebounds in 14.8 minutes of playing time per game. Unfortunately, in the end he still failed to gain a foothold in the NBA.
摩尔出生于1994年，身高1.85米。他在北佛罗里达大学（University of North Florida）的大学学习，大四赛季场均得到23.9分，3.2个篮板和4.0助攻。像许多球员一样，摩尔也拥有NBA的梦想。他在2017-18赛季参加了丹佛掘金夏季联赛，每场比赛14.8分钟内场均得到9.3分和1.7个篮板。不幸的是，最终他仍然未能在NBA站稳脚跟。
Moore, who left the United States, had toured European basketball courts in Italy, Israel, and France. He played for the Nantes team of the French Basketball League last season, averaging 14.6 points, 1.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.
The 24-year-old center Haas is 2.18 meters tall. He previously played for the Salt Lake City Stars of the NBA Development League. He averaged 8.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 0.7 blocks in 18.2 minutes of playing time per game.
Compared with the above two players, Chinese fans are more familiar with Speights. The 33-year-old player played for the Guangzhou Men's Basketball Team in the 2018-19 season. At that time, he represented the team in 29 games, averaging 32 minutes per game, scoring 22.7 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists.
After the famous coach Guo Shiqiang took over, the Guangzhou team has high ambitions for the new season. The team has more than once expressed its goal of launching an impact on the playoffs in the new season.
