Tseng to sign with BJ League’s Osaka Evessa

Local media reported that former Yulon Luxgen center Tseng Wen-ting will sign with Osaka Evessa of Japan’s pro league BJ League next week.

Tseng is expected to receive more playing time in the BJ League, which allows teams to carry as many as five Western imports and one Asian import on their 15-man rosters.

The 204cm center chose the BJ League because Japan Basketball League (JBL), the other professional league in Japan, allows only two imports on each team.

BJ League adopts a 52-game regular season which ends in May. Top four teams in the Eastern and Western Division will advance to the playoffs. Osaka Evessa currently ranks second in the West with 19 wins and 11 losses.
