Reading Time: 1 minutes

The guy who once scored 105 points in a New York City organized streetball game is teaming up with Al Harington in China as Corey Fisher signs with the Fujian Sturgeons of the Chinese Basketball Association.

Fisher, who went to the same high school as Harington (St. Patrick High School) in New Jersey spent four-year at Villanova University before commencing his pro-career in 2011. Fisher would play for three different teams in Europe; Antala BB in Turkey, Joventut Badalona in Spain, and BC Yenisey Krasnoyarsk in Russia.

Fisher and Harington will be part of a dynamic trio with Wang Zhelin (20 year old Chinese all-star) as the third piece of CBA’s version of the big three.

When you watch Fisher play, you immediately think of Allen Iverson and his way of playing big despite being small.

A little known fact, Fisher is the nephew of one of the biggest drug lords in New York City history (Guy Fisher).
