As part of the overseas visit, teams had the chance to make partnerships in China. For example, Philadelphia 76ers have secured several corporate partnerships with prominent Chinese companies in order to leverage their visibility in advance of the event so that the likenesses of Joel Embiid can be found on the bottles of the popular Chinese iced tea brand MasterKong.
