The Macau Black Bears have announced the return of Mikh McKinney to the team for its 2019-20 ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) campaign.
Mikh McKinney will return for his third season with the Macau Black Bears (debuted as the Chongson Kung Fu during the 2017-18 season) after the team announced the Filipino-American’s re-signing via social media.
Since entering the league back in 2017, the 27-year-old has displayed a remarkable propensity for scoring the basketball, including leading the league last season with 26.7 points per game while converting on 40 percent of his three-point attempts.
Additionally, the six-foot guard has also shown an all-around game, as he averaged 6.8 assists, 5.7 rebounds, and 1.9 steals per game in 2018-19.
Alongside Anthony Tucker, who has since signed with Mono Vampire Basketball Club, McKinney helped lead the Black Bears to postseason appearances in each of his previous two seasons with the team, but were ousted in the league’s semifinals in 2018 and quarterfinals in 2019.
For the upcoming season, McKinney will be joining Kenny Manigault and Brandon Edwards, whom the team previously announced, as the Black Bears’ world imports.
Despite the losses of the aforementioned Tucker and last season’s big man Ryan Watkins, the Black Bears can be assured the presence of a dynamic playmaker who can score with the best in the league on its roster in McKinney.
