Last year's imports were former NBA players, David Harrison and Smush Parker. The duo stayed for the whole season, providing the kind of stability that is always needed (and that, as seen above, bloody helps). To open this season, Guangdong were set to replace Parker with Harrison's former Pacers team mate, Fred Jones, whilst keeping Harrison as their centre. However, Harrison broke his leg in the preseason, and has not played all season. Guangdong therefore played the first 13 games with Jones as their only import.

David Harrison - Speaking of fouling a lot, David Harrison averaged 4.1 fouls in 26 minutes per game in China next season. This was a minor improvement on his 4.2fpg the season before.

- David Harrison: 25.0 mpg, 17.0 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 0.5 apg, 4.2 fpg, 0.4 spg, 1.0 bpg, 70% FG, 0% 3PT, 52% FT
Harrison is averaging a number of minutes that is tiny in comparison to those of everyone else, mainly because he can't stay out of foul trouble. Foul problems were the downfall of his NBA career, as was his lack of development over a four year period and a love of pot; despite the feel-good tone of this piece about his rebuilding of his career, Harrison is not having a particularly good season this year, with numbers down across the board.
