NEW YORK (AP)
The NBA's Basketball without Borders camps will go to Tokyo and Moscow for the first time.
South Africa also will host a camp for the 10th time, the league and FIBA announced Wednesday.
Led by Dikembe Mutombo and Sam Dalembert, the Tokyo camp will take place June 13-16. Players and coaches also will visit Sendai, where they will conduct a clinic for children affected by last year's earthquake and tsunami.
Among those taking part in the Johannesburg camp from Aug. 30-Sept. 2 are Chicago teammates Luol Deng and CJ Watson, Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka, and Milwaukee's Luc Mbah a Moute - a former Basketball without Borders camper from Cameroon.
Started in 2001, the camps teach basketball and provide lessons in health and wellness.
