The Foshan Dralions (Simplified Chinese: 佛山龙狮, formerly Shaanxi Gaitianli Kylins) are a professional basketball team in the Chinese Basketball Association, based in Foshan, Guangdong. In 2010, Shaanxi Kylins moved to Foshan and renamed themselves Foshan Dralions.

Playing in China[edit]

The team was founded in November 2000 by Xi'an Dongsheng Group (西安东盛(企业)集团, Pinyin: Xīān Dōngshèng (Qǐyè) Jítuán), and in August 2001 they won the "B" league championship and were promoted to the CBA.

A "kylin" is a type of mythical Chinese creature.

In the 2004–2005 season, the Shaanxi Kylins finished in fifth place in the North Division, out of the playoffs. In 2005–2006, they finished sixth, again out of the playoffs.

Playing in the IBL[edit]

The team was scheduled to participate in the 2008 season of the International Basketball League. They were replaced by the Shanxi Zhongyu.
