The rosters for the 10 participating teams for ABL Season 9 have been finalized, just in time for the start of the season.
Among the confirmed players are big names like 2017-2018 MVPs Ray Parks Jr. (Local Player), Mikh McKinney (Heritage Import), and Anthony Tucker (World Import) who are returning to their respective teams. Last season’s Co-Defensive Player of the Year, Renaldo Balkman, leads an exciting cast of returning imports that also include Marcus Elliott, Xavier Alexander, Chris Eversley, and Mike Singletary among others.
An entertaining twist to the season are the players that will be returning in the ABL, however with a different squad. Guys like Caelan Tiongson (Macau Black Bears to San Miguel Alab Pilipinas), Moses Morgan (Saigon Heat to Mono Vampire Basketball Club), Samuel Deguara (Mono Vampire Basketball Club to Hong Kong Eastern Basketball Team), and possibly most surprisingly Mario Wuysang (CLS Knights Indonesia to Wolf Warriors).
Two-Time Local MVP and former Singapore Slinger mainstay Wong Wei Long will also be making a return to the ABL after a one-year hiatus to play for the CLS Knights this season.
Each team can field up to three World Imports.
