Professional career

NBA draft

In 2003, Xue entered the National Basketball Association Draft, without official permission, and the Chinese authorities refused to let him play in the United States. He was selected 57th overall by the Dallas Mavericks, who traded the pick to the Denver Nuggets.[1] However, as he had not received the necessary clearance from the Chinese Basketball Association, Dallas did not sign him to an NBA contract.

As of 2012, Xue is the only Chinese basketball player to have been selected in an NBA draft without ever playing in the NBA.

CBA career

Xue began his career with Jilin Northeast Tigers where he played until the end of the 2002-2003 season, entering and being selected on the NBA draft. Afterwards he was signed by the Hong Kong Flying Dragons of the CBA, however, after being relegated the team folded, turning him into a free agent, so he signed with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers where he stayed until 2011 where he signed with Qingdao DoubleStar where he played until the end of the 2013-2014 season.

Move to the NBL

On August 24, 2014 he signed with Henan Shedianlaojiu for the rest of the season.[2]
