The NBA will stage an exhibition game next August in South Africa.
Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum made the announcement Tuesday in Johannesburg, where the NBA is holding a Basketball without Borders camp. He says all proceeds will go to charity and that becoming the first U.S. professional league to play a game on the continent is ''just an evolution of our commitment to continuing to bring basketball to the continent of Africa.''
The NBA first held one of its camps in South Africa in 2003 and has returned nearly every year. Players and coaches will provide instruction to 60 top young African players while also conducting clinics and providing the campers with life skills lessons.
NBA coaches Dwane Casey, Brian Shaw and Lionel Hollins are among this year's instructors.
