Chinese basketball officials say Yi Jianlian has committed to joining Team China this August for the FIBA Asian Championship in the Chinese city of Tianjin. Hoop official Hu Jiashi told Chinese media the specific timing of Yi's return hasn't been decided. The Nets are reportedly talking to Chinese officials about having Yi spend time in New Jersey this off-season. Yi has played virtually non-stop since October 2007.
