NEW YORK (AP) -The NBA will stage an event in India for the first time this summer, conducting one of its Basketball without Borders camps in New Delhi.
The league also announced Wednesday it will return to Turkey and South Africa to run camps, which the league began in 2001. The programs bring together top young players for instruction and competition, along with discussions on HIV/AIDS prevention.
Turkish stars Hedo Turkoglu of Orlando and Mehmet Okur of Utah are expected to participate in the June 4-7 camp in Istanbul, pending the outcome of the playoffs. The event in New Delhi is scheduled for July 3-6.
The event in Johannesburg, South Africa, will be held Sept. 3-7. Washington All-Star Caron Butler and Detroit coach Flip Saunders will take part in the camp. A clinic is planned at an academy in Dakar, Senegal, founded by Dallas Mavericks director of scouting Amadou Gallo Fall.
