SINGAPORE — The Singapore Slingers are re-signing Desmond Oh, Delvin Goh, and Ng Han Bin. Retaining the three mainstays of the team for the upcoming season, forms one of the most experienced squads in the ABL.
Desmond Oh has played in every single ABL season and is the only ABL player to do so. This upcoming season with be his 9th season in the league. Han Bin joined the team a year after Oh, which will make this his 8th season. Delvin Goh signed on as a 16-year-old youngster in the 2012 season and he will be making his seventh season appearance with the team this year.
The trio will join re-signed threeseason veteran World Import Xavier Alexander to combine for 460 ABL games played between all four players. Each of them have played an integral part in the Slinger’s recent success of four consecutive playoff runs and two ABL Finals appearances.
Oh holds the ABL record for 174 games played and has only missed a total of three games in the Slinger’s franchise history. At 32-years-old, Oh was an important part of the team as their leader and holds career averages of 3.4 points, 1.3 rebounds, and 1.0 assist per game.
Han Bin has found his role on the team a three-point specialist with good size on the wing. Last season was a breakout performance for the 29-year-old with averages of 8.4 points and 3.0 rebounds on 33.3% shooting from long range. His 43 made three-pointers from last year were crucial and will be needed again next season.
Delvin Goh made a significant leap in the ABL last season and is expected to make an even bigger jump this year. Goh is now able to fully commit to the team when he completes his National Service program before the season starts. He averaged 8.4 points and 5.0 rebounds last season, numbers that are expected to go up even more this season.
