Will Jayson Castro Play For CBA?

Jayson Castro
After the Meralco Bolts sent the Talk 'N Text KaTropa to an early vacation, rumor has it that Jayson Castro might be looking for a way out and entertain thought of playing in China.

Castro, chosen as FIBA's best point guard in Asia, has admitted that he is in touch with a team in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA).

"I'm still communicating pero iyung proposal talaga about sa contract, wala pa," Castro told ABS-CBN Sports shortly after he was named Best Player of the Conference last 9 October.

"Kasi alam din nila sa season pa dito," he added.

Castro, however, clarified that he is not actively pursuing a playing stint in China since the Texters fell out of the PBA Governors’ Cup race.

The Blur is keen on leading the TNT KaTropa to a PBA title in the coming PBA season.

"Nandoon pero hindi namin pinu-push talaga," Castro said. "Kasi syempre yung nangyari sa amin dito sa conference na ito, parang iyung [TNT] management siyempre gustong makarating ulit sa finals."

When asked if he is looking at the CBA as a possible springboard to his NBA dreams, he said: "Hindi ko na iniisip yung NBA or ano, basta ako gusto ko every conference nai-improve ako as a basketball player. Para sa akin naman, kung darating, darating."
