Sun Ming Ming is China's latest NBA prospect, and at 7-foot-8 3/4, the 21-year-old
is roughly two inches taller than former No. 1 pick Yao Ming of the Houston Rockets.
"With his size, that intrigues everybody," former NBA player Keith Gatlin told the News & Record after working out with Sun. "He can really shoot the
ball to be that size. The challenge for him now is to get mobile, to get up and down the court."
The lure of the NBA is certainly exciting to the raw big man.
"I have more opportunities here," Sun told the News & Record through interpreter Hsiao-Yin Chu. "I have the opportunity to play with the best players
in the world and get into good basketball."
