Qingdao Eagles (CBA) inked 32-year old Central African ex-international power forward James Mays (206-104kg-86, college: Clemson). He played in the summer at Guizhou in the NBL. In 25 games he recorded very impressive stats: 30.1ppg, 15.2rpg, 1.6apg and 1.7spg. A very good season in his career as he was voted to Asia-Basket.com All-Chinese NBL Honorable Mention and League Player of the Week. The last season Mays played at LG Sakers in South Korean KBL where in 53 games he averaged remarkable 21.8ppg, 11.9rpg, 2.7apg and 1.9spg. Good season as he was selected League Player of the Week (4 times).
In 2008 Colorado 14ers selected him as second overall pick in D-League draft.
He attended Clemson University and it is his tenth season in pro basketball.
Mays has tried to make it to the NBA and played in the NBA Pro Summer League in 2013.
Among other achievements he received Asia-Basket.com All-PBA Commissioner's Cup Defensive Player of the Year award back in 2014. Strangely Mays also played for Central African National Team in 2013.
He played at the Arab Club Championships Quarterfinals three years ago.
Mays is a very experienced player. He has quite traveled the world as his pro career brought him to nine different countries on four different continents (Europe, Asia, Latin America and of course North America). Mays has played previously professionally also in Dominican Rep., Italy (New Basket Brindisi), Philippines (Hotshots), Puerto Rico (Capitanes), Turkey (Mersin Buyuksehir Belediyesi), NBA G League (Sioux Falls Skyforce and Maine Red Claws), United Arab Emirates (Ahli Shabab) and D-League (Springfield A.).
His game is described as: Showed an improved ability to find open looks for teammates; one of the quickest post players in the conference and maybe in the entire country…has the ability to create crowd enthusiasm by turning in exciting plays…he's also a very good defender, sees well the court and passes the ball well.

Djimrabaye is back at Orleans - 7 months ago
Entente Orleans 45 (ProB) added to their roster 25-year old Central African ex-international power forward Jimmy Djimrabaye (202-92). It is actually his comeback to Entente Orleans 45 as he has played here before. Djimrabaye is not a newcomer in French League where he played last season at BCM Gravelines Dunkerque Grand Littoral (ProA). ProB will be definitely a better match and he can see more playing time. The last season Djimrabaye played also at Gravelines Dunkerque (also in ProA). In...   [read more]
