Bourousis was in talks with the team of Lithuanian coach Jonas Kazlauskas, however according to the latest reports he ended up in the Zhejiang Guangsha Lions with a two year deal which is worth a total of $5 million.

Langford is expected to get a similar deal but for one season, which will pay him $2,2 million. It’s one more proof that China has become a viable option for EuroLeague stars, who get paid more than Europe and on the same time have to compete in a shorter season in a league with modest competition by local talent.

After all even an established but aging international star like Louis Scola decided to sign in the Chinese CBA next season.
