Now that the NBA season looks set to be cancelled, the Flying Tigers are looking to sign up Atlanta Hawks point guard Jamal Crawford to add to their current American contingent of Kenyon Martin and Quincy Douby.

Crawford, who won the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year Award in 2010, would have to formally sacrifice the right to appear in the NBA next season if the deal is to be sewn up, as CBA regulations do not permit a player to break contract to play for another team before the contract expires. But speculation is rife that he will follow Wilson Chandler and J.R Smith in committing to the CBA for 2011-12 season.

League play in China, is set to get underway on Saturday.
