Mavs expect Yi Jianlian in uniform tonightPosted by Inside Hoops
Two dominating performances with the Texas Legends were enough to convince the Mavericks that Yi Jianlian is ready for his NBA return.
The 7-footer was called up and met the Mavericks in Michigan, where he is expected to be in uniform Tuesday when they play the Detroit Pistons.
“He’s really a good athlete, he has good hands and he’s just a nice, versatile big man for us,” said president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson, who saw Yi’s two games with the Legends, the team Nelson co-owns.
