Rumors about the dissolution of the Bayi Men's Basketball Team have been prevalent for a long time. This veteran team that has made great achievements in the CBA is the youthful memory of many domestic fans. The team has won the championship eight times. As early as the end of last season, there was news that "August First Men's Basketball Team will withdraw from the CBA" and the team's qualifications will be taken over by Ningbo Fubon Group. Earlier, some domestic media reported that the players of the Bayi Men's Basketball Team had submitted applications for retirement. Due to the fact that the Bayi Men's Basketball Team is part of the army and has a special nature, the players are all members of the army. If you want to leave Bayi to join other teams, you first need to retire. In the Bayi Men’s Basketball Team, Zou Yuchen, Fu Hao, Xu Zhonghao and other players are all good players. If the team is disbanded, they are expected to be claimed or exchanged by other teams and register for the second time before the trading window.
There are only five days left before the start of the 2020-2021 season. There is no definite statement about the whereabouts of Bayi Men's Basketball.
