Las Ve­gas no gam­ble for Ding, Zhou

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

NBA China boss David Shoe­maker be­lieves promis­ing Chi­nese play­ers Zhou Qi and Ding Yanyuhang seized their op­por­tu­ni­ties to shine this sum­mer in the US.

Zhou, 21, and Ding, 23, got tongues wag­ging with some stand­out dis­plays for the Hous­ton Rock­ets and Dal­las Mav­er­icks in the NBA’s Las Ve­gas sum­mer league.

Zhou has al­ready signed a con­tract with Hous­ton while last sea­son’s CBA MVP Ding looks set to stay in Dal­las af­ter mak­ing a huge im­pres­sion — at one point re­ceiv­ing a stand­ing ova­tion from fans in Ve­gas and be­ing in­tro­duced by an an­nouncer as ‘Mr Sum­mer League.’
