7 foot Zhang Kai invited to Sacramento Kings training camp
He's not expected to make the team by any stretch of imagination, and as I had predicted he did not make the Olympic team despite a stellar CBA season, as well as some very good scoring outings in the pre-Olympic warm up games. But Zhang Kai will definitely benefit from this trip, as the Sacramento - Chinese connection works one more time, with Taiwanese scout Jack Mai successfully bringing in Chen Hsin An (Taiwan, 2002 camp), Liu Wei (China, 2004 camp), Tien Lei (Taiwan, 2005 SL team), Huang Haibei (China, 2006 SL team) one after another to Sac town.
Zhang Kai is a rail thin 7 footer born in 1982 (which should be correct...) who has super long arms and can jump out of the gym but is like 80lbs underweight for those of you who don't know.
at least u got players invited to the summer league

good chance for him to get some experience against NBA and potential NBA players then. Who knows, if by a long shot he does well, he might get chucked on the D-League, which is still an improvement over the CBA.
then, they should invite fadi or any lebanese players for improvements
