   Chinese Basketball Association Imports, 2010/11, Again

Jameel Watkins - 30 games, 36.0 mpg, 20.5 ppg, 13.3 rpg, 1.7 apg, 0.7 spg, 1.9 bpg, 3.2 TOpg, 54% FG, 20% 3PT, 68% FT

Jilin opened the season with Young and Watkins, a seasoned veteran of the Chinese dance. The now-33 year old Watkins's 13.3 rebounds were good for 6th in the league, and an improvement on his 16/10 numbers from last season. Former Sonics pick Young was, as ever, getting to the basket, averaging 8 free throws a game. But his impression of an undersized Corey Maggette didn't sit well with the team, and they looked to replace him for a while, eventually settling on Tim Pickett. Pickett had started the season with Israeli team Ironi Ashkelon, averaging 10.4 points in 7 games, but was released after being caught in possession of marijuana. He later returned to China where, once again, he ended up winning games single-handedly for one of the league's lesser teams.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 71

- Jameel Watkins

Veteran Watkins has spent quite a lot of his career in Asia, and spent another year there this time around. He played for Jiangsu in China, and averaged 15.6 points and 9.6 rebounds in only 29 minutes per game. He has not played since the CBA season concluded, however; despite playing in Puerto Rico last summer, Watkins has not done the same this time. Not yet, at least.

   Chinese Basketball Association Statistics, 2010

- Jameel Watkins: 28.5mpg, 15.5ppg, 9.2rpg, 1.1apg, 3.7fpg, 0.9spg, 1.8bpg, 59% FG, 0% 3PT, 64% FT

Watkins has been with the team all year, and has spent much of his 10 year professional career in Asia, so this is nothing new to him. His numbers are solid if unspectacular, although he did miss some time due to injury. Watkins, who first started at Georgetown way back in 1995, turns 33 this summer. But the Asian basketball market tends to stay open for longer than many others, so this need not be his swansong.
