Reading Time: 1

The Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) has a few foreign players that just keep going back to China and making a career out of it.

One of those players is former Rutgers University standout point-guard Quincy Douby as he and the Tianjin Lions reached a reported one-year deal on Tuesday.

Douby, 30, spent three years in the NBA after college before taking his talents overseas. In Tianjin, he replaces Sebastian Telfair (who turned down a two-year $7 million from Tianjin to signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder) and joins Sheldon Williams as the other foreign player for the Lions.

Douby has played three seasons in the CBA on three different teams and is an absolute scoring machine in China. He holds the record for most points in a single game when he went off for a whopping 75-points playing alongside Eddie Curry in Zhejiang. He also holds the record for most points in a CBA finals game (53) and most points in a CBA All-Star game (44).
