Jordan Heading does not renew with T1’s Taichung


Jordan Heading will no longer be playing with Taichung Wagor in the next T1 League season.

The 6-foot-2 guard announced on social media that he no longer renewed with the Suns to enter free agency.

“Thank you to Taichung for the opportunity to return back to where it all started for me,” said Heading, who grew up in Taichung before moving to the US to study and play for California Baptist University.

“Thankful for all the memories and friendships.”

Controversial was the move of Heading to play in the T1 last October.

Back then, the 26-year-old was signed to be a full-time player for Gilas Pilipinas as part of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas’ partnership with the PBA. In fact, Heading was the top pick in the 2021 PBA Gilas draft.

According to a report by the Philippine Star’s Quinito Henson, FIBA ruled in favor of Heading playing pro overseas. His contract with the SBP is amateur in nature, allowing him to play overseas elsewhere.

In one year with Taichung, Heading averaged 19.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.2 steals per contest, leading the Suns to the second seed.

However, Taichung fell to eventual champion Kaohsiung in the best-of-three finals, 3-0.

“Proud to have been a part of T1’s inaugural season,” added Heading.

Now a free agent, Heading will be announcing where his next destination will be.
