No dates have been announced, but the appearance will continue the trend of NBA teams competing in China. Last year, the Dallas Mavericks and Philadelphia 76ers traveled to the country in October for two preseason games.
Since 2004, 17 NBA teams have played 26 games in Beijing, Guangzhou, Macao, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Taipei.
James’ teammate Lance Stephenson has already played three times in China, representing the Indiana Pacers, LA Clippers and New Orleans Pelicans. If he remains with the Lakers next season, Stephenson would have the most games logged in China by any NBA player.
