Report: Team USA to play in Taiwan before Beijing Olympics

United Daily News reported last week that the U.S. men's national team is scheduled to play one of its four warmup games in Taipei before the Beijing Olympics in August.

Team USA will meet 2007 Eurobasket champion Russian national team in Taipei Arena, the report said, adding that two exhibition games will be played in Macau and another one in Shanghai.

ESPN, which owns 5 percent of NBA China, is expected to broadcast all four games, the report also stated.

However, the story was not confirmed by NBA Asia.
