It's official, the Yunnan Honghe Bulls (云南红河奔牛) have been booted from the China Basketball Association (CBA) for the coming season as punishment for failing to pay wages and debts, according to a post on China Sports Review.
"Yunnan's poor business operation last season resulted in unpaid wages for players and coaches and a negative impact on the league," Zhang said.
The Bulls joined the CBA in the 2004–2005 season, after winning the championship of the second-tier National Basketball League in 2004. Yunnan Honghe's ejection leaves the CBA at only 17 teams, while leaving the city of Mengzi with a large basketball arena that no longer has a tenant.© Copyright 2005-2022 GoKunming.com all rights reserved.
