Basketball Without Borders camps reach 2 new destinations
NEW YORK (AP) The NBA says its Basketball Without Borders camps will go to Gran Canaria, Spain, and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, for the first time.
The league says Wednesday the camps, run jointly with FIBA, basketball's world governing body, also will return to Johannesburg for the 12th time.
The Basketball Without Borders Europe camp will be held June 2-5 and include NBA players Gerald Henderson and Cody Zeller of Charlotte, and Damjan Rudez of Indiana. It will feature 50 campers from more than 25 European countries.
In their 15th year, the Basketball Without Borders camps have sent 33 players on to the NBA. This year they will feature top players born in 1998 who will learn from NBA and FIBA instructors while also taking part in community service projects.
The Johannesburg camp will be July 29-Aug. 1, with the Dominican Republic one from Aug. 13-16.
