Team China Wants Yi for Extended Stay

Yi Jianlian arrives in China any day now to train for the FIBA Asia Games August 6-16 in Tianjin. He may not be right back after that, however. China wants Yi and the Lakers' Sun Yue to play in the Stankovic Cup August 28-31 in Kunshan "unless they have some special reasons," says Xin Lancheng of the Chinese Basketball Association. The Cup features national teams from Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe.
