Dongguan New Century Leopards (东莞新世纪烈豹) or Dongguan Leopards or Dongguan New Century are a Chinese professional basketball team in the Southern Division of the Chinese Basketball Association, who take their name from Dalang, Dongguan, Guangdong and play home games at Dalang Arena (大朗体育馆).

They were runners-up in the 2004 CBL championship and were promoted to the CBA for the 2005–2006 season.

In their first season in the CBA in 2005–2006, Dongguan New Century finished in seventh and last place in the South Division, out of the playoffs.

In July 2011, prior to his achieving fame in the NBA, point guard Jeremy Lin played for the Leopards during a three-game tournament. Lin was named MVP of the tournament.[1]
