NBA plans major complex in China

AP

BEIJING — The NBA and a Chinese partner say they plan to open a basketball center near Beijing.

The partners say the facility in Tianjin, a port city east of the Chinese capital, will include NBA-style basketball courts, a fitness center, a restaurant and other features, according to NBA China and the Yatai Lanhai Investment Group.

The announcement was made as the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Clippers played NBA exhibition games in Beijing and Shanghai.

The 12,000-square-meter NBA Center is to become part of a mixed-use development by Yatai Lanhai with housing for 150,000. The New York Times reported the entire complex will cost $1.5 billion.
