Ha Seung-jin will be part of South Korean Basketball team

In a great announcement for the basketball fans, Ha Seung-jin, the first Korean to play in the NBA, will join South Korean national team for 2006 Asian Games after being waived by the Milwaukee Bucks.

Indeed, the towering 223-centimeter (7-foot 3-inch) centre missed much of the pre-season with sprained knee ligaments and was released by the Bucks last week, according to a newspaper version.

We must keep in mind that after two seasons with Portland, Ha was traded to the Bucks this year as part of a four-player deal that included sending Jamaal Magloire to the Trail Blazers.

It's important to know that Ha averaged 1.5 points in 46 matches with Portland.
