Xavier Cooks to the Japanese B-League

Chiba Jets. Good $$$, especially with him still being paid by Washington.

Wonder if anyone will ever get directly called up the NBA from the B League. Would be surprised if there's even G League call ups.

Anyone know if B League money eclipses middle of the road Europe money or comes close to good euro money?

For bigs pays more than the NBL, Nick Kay is on over $1 million a season over there.

If Nick Kay is on over a million a season they are getting robbed, his side has had a very poor start to their season, and yes he's had a few good games.

Nick Kay certainly is as per Olgun:

We've already seen Nick Kay, for example, sign a new deal in Japan that's worth, sources said, effectively the amount of the entire NBL salary cap, so the substantial money to be made in Asia remains an obstacle for the Australian league to overcome.

It's why the NBL loses so many bigs to Japan.

Kay's team is 8 and 6 coming 10th out of 24 in the league (not a poor start)

his stats are 18.4, 9.5 and 3.4
rated 2nd in the league for efficiency (no just a few good games)

So i guess his high salary is worth it (whatever it is)

In the west group they are third last out of eight. Compared to last season where they were in much better shape, were favourites but collapsed in the finals missing the GF. He's a big name import, they are there to win games and put up big stats.

Looks like he's having a good season. I doubt his club is feeling ripped off given everything he brings beyond his impressive stats.

One win, one loss against Kays shimane, loss was a belting, not a lot has changed, 1-6 free throws, 0-2 threes. Kay has Buford as team mate and Cooks has Mooney. Both sides should be doing better than they are.
