The Los Angeles Lakers have officially announced the signing of Ground Zero Training client Yi Jianlian!

Yi, who is from China, recently finished playing for his country at the ’16 Olympic Games, where he averaged over 20 points per game while shooting 46.7% from three-point range. This was Yi’s 4th Olympic Games in his highly successful career.

Lakers fans shouldn’t take this signing lightly, as Yi was formerly drafted with the 6th pick in the ’07 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. This marks Yi’s fifth team in his NBA career with stints as arguably the most successful player in the Chinese Basketball Association’s history.  He is a polarizing figure in the league having been named the CBA MVP 8 times. In addition, he is a 4 time CBA Champion, 2 time CBA Finals MVP, and has won 3 gold medals at the FIBA Asia Championships.

After a season working with Ground Zero Training’s CEO Tim Anderson and teaming with fellow GZT client Will Bynum, Yi Jianlian went on to claim the CBA MVP award for his 8th time! We look forward to continuing to work with Yi as he returns to the NBA to team with 2015 1st Round GZT product, Larry Nance Jr.
