@BalinWithBryan reports that the Mavs have recalled Yi Jianlian from their D-League affiliate Texas Legends. He will join the team in Detroit.
Dallas signed the 6-foot-10 three days ago to a one-year contract out of China and immediately assigned him to the Texas Legends where he rejoined Del Harris, who coached the forward during his stint as a coach of the Chinese national team.
Obviously the Mavs were pleased what they saw from their new acquisition. He averaged 23.0 Points on 47.4% shooting, 12.0 Rebounds and 2.0 Blocks per game in 36.6 Minutes through two games with the Legends over the weekend. Sean Williams, who was sent down to the D-League alongside Yi Jianlian, will stay with the Texas Legends for now.
UPDATE: @fishsports reports that Legends Coach Del Harris is raving about Yi as a center for the Mavs, thinks Yi will crack the rotation at that position.
