The Westports Malaysia Dragons have signed Jason Brickman and Matthew Wright as their two new ASEAN imports to bolster their squad for the upcoming ASEAN Basketball League Season 6.

Jason Brickman (183 cm) is a Filipino-American point guard who played in NCAA Divison I for Long Island University. During his senior season, he averaged 11.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 10.0 assists per game. He has the fourth highest assist total in NCAA history and led the NCAA in assists for two years. Brickman has since played in Russia and Germany.

Matthew Wright (193 cm) is a Filipino-Canadian shooting guard who also played in the NCAA Division I. Wright played for St. Bonaventure University where he averaged 16.3 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 3.1 assists in his senior year. Wright has played in France since playing in the NCAA. He averaged close to 10 points in France shooting 34.3% from the three point range.

“I’ve been in contact with both players since their college days,” says Dragons’ Head Coach Ariel Vanguardia. “I have followed their progress and I’m very excited that they trusted the KL Dragons. Part of their decision to join was because Moala Tautuaa was selected first in the PBA Draft last month and now plays on the Smart Gilas Pilipinas National Team. Tautuaa played for the Dragons in the ASEAN Basketball League for the last two seasons. Justin Melton also played in season four and now is a PBA (Philippines Basketball Association) All-Star. Both Brickman and Wright are very excited to be part of the Dragons.”

The ASEAN Basketball League starts at the end of October 2015 with the Dragons looking to play their first home game on the 31st October.
