Rakeem Christmas moves to Taiwan

Rakeem Christmas (206 cm, F) has signed with Yulon Luxgen Dinos from Taiwan. Last season Christmas only played three games for his Turkish team Ormansport Genclik and the season before that, three games in the Philippines, and another three games in Puerto Rico. That has been the trend since he left college in 2015. Initially, he chased the NBA dream and bounced around between the G League, Summer Leagues, training camps, and even a handful of NBA games. The only full season he played was in 2018 in China (NBA-2nd tier) when he played for Henan Shedianlaojiu. In highschool, Rakeem Christmas was one of the best players in the US, and he was also dominant as a college player when he averaged 17.5 ppg and 9 rpg for Syracuse. Consequently, he was drafted in the second draft (36th overall).
