Nine players will represent Africa at this year’s Basketball Without Borders (BWB) Camp during the NBA All Star Weekend which takes place on February 18 in Los Angeles.

The BWB program has over the years provided a major platform for outstanding talents to showcase their skill in front of scouts.

This year’s event has another layer to it since players from NBA Acdemies set up all over the world will also be present for the games.

Players will be taken through several basketball related activities including athletic tests, drills and several interviews with NBA representatives set to be in attendance.

Nigeria’s Charles Bassey, Mali’s N’Faly Dante and Cameroon’s Paul Eboua headline the African contingent which representatives from the likes of Tunisia, Central African Republic and Angola.

2018 NBA All Stars Al Horford and Goran Dragic will lead a group of players to take players through the camp and mentor them.

NBA Draft lottery picks Jamal Murray, Frank Ntilikina and Dragan Bender are BWB alums.
