   Chinese Basketball Association Imports, 2010/11, Again

Jackson Vroman - 27 games, 35.2 mpg, 22.6 ppg, 10.6 rpg, 4.9 apg, 2.8 spg, 1.6 bpg, 4.0 TOpg, 56% FG, 15% 3PT, 59% FT

Since falling out of the NBA after only two seasons, Vroman has played in Spain (Gran Canaria & Girona), Lithuania (Lietuvos Rytas) and Iran (Saba Mehr & Mahram), where he played for the best part of two years, winning pretty much everything there was to win. In May 2009, he obtained Lebanese citizenship (somehow), and has been a national team staple since then, despite the occasional threat of replacing him. Vroman, who turns 30 in June, is extremely effective in the paint, which makes his occasional flirtations with the perimeter hard to explain. He's not a centre, he turns it over a lot, and fouls just as much (4.4 fouls per game in this CBA season, although he's fouled out only twice). Yet despite these flaws, the talent and production is undeniable. He's 9th in the league in assists, and he's a power forward. No mean feat.

Despite being a key component of the trade for Luol Deng, Vroman's NBA career didn't last very long. He played only 87 games over 2 seasons with the Suns and Hornets, putting up a PER of 8.2, before being waived in March 2006 and never returning. Following his NBA career came a year and a half in Spain, a few months in Lithuania, and then two years in Iran, where he remains to this day. Vroman has played for Mahram in a multitude of competitions, and has averaged 26 points per game for them in the preliminary round of the Asian Club Championships.

He seems to be enjoying himself, too:
