Congrats to Malcolm, this is a very good situation for him. They love their basketball over there and they are great people who will treat him like royalty.

I was a bit surprised that he went to the Phillipines. I expected it to pay almost nothing. What I found was surprising. As of 2014, the PBA salary cap is $100k/year. The teams can pay some bonuses. They are not large. e.g. ~$2k for making the playoffs. http://pba.inquirer.net/48252/money-matters

For comparison, the typical EU basketball player makes $65k-$100k/year, post tax. The top EU player makes ~$3.5M/year.

A max PBA contract isn't looking bad given the cost of living difference.

The Philippine national basketball team has Andray Blatche and Jordan Clarkson. One of the good teams in Asia.

Thanks for the updates. Please keep them coming throughout the season. My daughter's favorite Illini player was Malcolm. She will be happy to hear that he is playing well.

I don't live in the Philippines right now but grew up there but I do follow the basketball scene there. Became excited when I heard Malcolm is playing in the Philippines...enough to think of flying in just to watch him play.

I live an hour and a half away by plane and do go home every so often....so will check the skeds...hope I can catch him as the season si quite short...I think it ends by mid or late Oct

Looks like Malcolm's next game is next Friday, August 4th. Trying to see if there is a live stream and what time that would be.

Usually evening which means it would be morning US time. The game is streamed BUT will not allow the feed outside the Philippines. If you have VPN maybe it will work.

It appears that Hill signed with a team in Germany. Does anyone have details? He was one of my favorite players but hard to keep track of guys overseas.
