BREAKING NEWS !!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

So it seemed it will an EXCITING Summer League for Chinese basketball fans !!!!


Not only there will be 3 Chinese players (Ding Yan Yuhang, Zhou Qi and Li Muhao) playing in the Summer League, it was disclosed today on the Weibo of the Tencent/ESPN US-based Chinese sports reporter that the China Nation Team (The Red Team) coached by Li Nan will play 5 UNDERGROUND SCRIMMAGES with 5 NBA teams during the Summer League !!!!

The tentative schedule is as follows:
  • July 6 vs Memphis Grizzlies
  • July 7 vs Minnesota Timberwolves
  • July 8 vs New Orleans Pelicans
  • July 9 vs Toronto Raptors
  • July 10 vs a TBD team
It was reported Yao Ming, in his capacity as CBA Chairman, might also travel with the team to Las Vegas to watch/supervise the national team play.

Unfortunately, the Weibo link requires a login and probably requires knowledge of chinese characters.

I did not hear about Li Muhao. Which team is he going to play for?

Also, i think Guo Ailun might also play in Summer League for an NBA team?

I posted about Li Muhao and Guo Ailun on the other thread.

This is about Guo Ailun declining invitations to play in the Summer League.

And this is about Philadelphia 76ers inviting Li Muhao for the Summer League.

Since the Chinese National Team will play in the Summer League, isn't Guo Ailun on the CNT? or will it be the other CNT (Red team with Zhao Jiwei) that will be in this Summer League?

Well Guo Ailun is on the Blue Team, while Zhao Jiwei is on the Red Team.

It's not known yet whether the China Red Team will summon Zhou Qi and Ding Yan Yuhang back to the Red Team to play these 5 underground scrimmages or will just let Zhou Qi and Ding Yan Yuhang to play for Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks.

The interesting part is that Wang Zhelin had finally recovered from his injuries and rejoined the China National Team (Red Team) yesterday and will travel with the natioal team to USA for these 5 underground scrimmages, and will play against Memphis Grizzlies.


Hope he will do well in that scrimmage vs Memphis Grizzlies (and the other underground scrimmages) to further impress Memphis Grizzlies to give him a rookie contract for the new season.

What do you mean by "underground scrimmages"? So the CNT are not technically playing in the Summer League? but instead just practicing the with the Memphis summer league team?

Underground scrimmage probably meant the games are not to be OPEN TO PUBLIC, I.E. NO TICKETS SOLD, but just played behind closed doors, but will be strictly in compliance with the NBA rules.
