After successfully signing Justin Young and Tran Dang Khoa, the Heat continue to increase firepower to their roster by adding Vietnamese American guard Corey Cilia for the upcoming ABL 9 campaign.
“I know the ABL is a different beast than the VBA but I’ll be ready to tackle any challenges for the benefit of the team”, Cilia to Heat fans after the signing is completed.
Standing at 5’10’’, Cilia is one half of the sharpshooter duo playing for the HCM City Wings in the 2018 VBA, averaged 12.67 PPG, 1.67 APG and 2.08 SPG in his rookie season.
