Jilin Tonggang Northeast Tigers (吉林通钢东北虎) or Jilin Northeast Tigers or Jilin Tonggang are a Chinese professional basketball team in the Northern Division of the Chinese Basketball Association, based in Changchun, Jilin.

The team was founded in 1956 but became a professional club in 1998. They were known as Jilin Yiqi (吉林一汽) in 2002–2003 and Jilin Jiliang (吉林吉粮) in 2001–2002 and Jilin Henghe (吉林恒和) in 2000–2001. Presumably these reflect changes of corporates sponsorship.

In the 2004–2005 season, the Jilin Northeast Tigers finished in fourth place in the Northern Division, but lost in the quarter-finals to the Southern Division's Guangdong Southern Tigers, the defending champions. In 2005–2006 they had the same finish and suffered exactly the same fate; in fact, it was the third year in a row that the "northern tigers" were eliminated in the playoffs by the "southern tigers".
