Wang Flies to Oakland to Meet with Team China

On Thursday, Wang caught a flight to Oakland, California, and planned to speak to China's players and coaches. Wang played for the Dallas Mavericks last season and became the first player from China ever to appear in an NBA game. He angered the Chinese federation by refusing to return home in May for national team training. He stayed in Los Angeles instead.

In a letter dated July 26th and published in the China Sports Daily, the federation urged the center to return from the United States. China is scheduled to play in an exhibition against the United States on Thursday night. Wang is listed as an alternate on China's preliminary roster for the World Championships, which start later this month in Indianapolis.
