Yi’s Agents Looking For Bigger Market.

The Milwaukee Bucks drafted Yi sixth overall in New York last Thursday. According to sources, his agents are seeking a trade away from the Bucks.

Yi did not travel to Milwaukee for the customary post-draft introduction, saying he needed to head to Dallas to join the Chinese national team.

Before the draft, Yi’s camp had prevented him from working out for the Bucks as they did not want him to be drafted by a small market team, especially one from a city without a significant Chinese population.

“Our agent team had meetings to study this case immediately after the draft,” said Yi’s Chinese agent Zhao Gang. “Yi’s selection at six has proved his capabilities and value.

“However, we feel that the Bucks are not the best fit for Yi Jianlian. Our team will make contact with other teams who have watched Yi’s training and games to see if there is any possibility of a trade.”
