Players to watch out for: (Captain options):
Kemba Walker: The All-Star will definitely be a super-star attraction in China. For a team which struggled for the entirety of the 2018-19 season, the 28-year-old mustered quite an impressive number through the last NBA season. He is now with Boston Celtics, where it is assumed that the point-guard will unlock his true potential.
Donovan Mitchell: The 22-year-old point guard is coming off a stellar season with Utah Jazz. Just don’t drop him from your Dream11 Fantasy team.
