The Saigon Heat have announced the signing of American center Chris Charles for the upcoming ABL season. The Heat first broke the news on their Facebook Page earlier today. “WELCOME BACK TO SAIGON HEAT!” the post stated.
Chris Charles donned the Heat jersey for four games during the 2016-2017 ABL season.
The 7’1″ big man is a 3x Defensive Player of the Year Awardee, 2x Import MVP, ABL Champion, and was recently included in the Final 21 nominees for the Top 10 ABL Players of All-Time.
However, the now 38-year-old has had to deal with injuries in the past few seasons. Charles signed with Mono Vampire last season but was only limited to 3 games before being placed on the Injured List.
Playing in his 7th season in ABL, Charles will have to prove that he can still play at a high-level and put up significant numbers for his new team.
Chris Charles will be joining recent signing Tam Dinh for the Saigon Heat’s 2019-2020 ABL campaign.
