sixers take a look at yi

Lots of theory and speculation over the latest NBA prospect to hit our shores from China, power forward Yi Jianlian... this week, the Philadelphia 76ers attended one of Yi's private workouts. Rumors suggest that Yi may be fading in the June 28 draft and that the Sixers, who pick 12th, 21st and 30th in the first round, could have a legitimate shot at him: Out West, Sixers put their eyes on Yi. At 6-foot-11, 238 pounds, could he be the next Chinese sensation on the court? We shall see.
