Former Dallas Mavericks' guard Jerry Stackhouse will take trials at Shanxi Zhongyu of the ChineseBasketball Association (CBA) league, local media reported on Thursday.

35-year-old Stackhouse was expected to arrive in Taiyuan on Wednesday, but he remained in the United States due to visa problems, the league's official site reported.
