Wolves finalize addition of NBA's 1st Chinese minority owner

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The NBA has spent years making in-roads in basketball-loving China, installing offices there, bringing players stateside and playing exhibitions there to increase the league's presence in a country that can't get enough of it.

One of the few steps left to be taken was to add a Chinese owner to a team. As the NBA's chairman of the board, Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor felt a particular sense of duty to make that happen.

Taylor finalized an agreement with two new minority owners on Wednesday, including the first Chinese minority partner in league history.
