The Cameroonian Basketball Federation (FECABASKET) on Sunday announced a 30-player list for the FIBA AfroBasket 2017 Qualifiers and the Final Round. While head coach Lazare Adingono remains in charge of the team, a number of new faces are set – if available – to make their international debut with the Cameroonians. Among the newcomers, Joel Embiid and Pascal Siakam – a pair currently making waves in the NBA – headline the provisional list. They will be joined by Los Angeles Clippers forward Luc Mbah a Moute, who might play his last FIBA AfroBasket. According to the FECABASKET, the provisional list gives them a chance of choosing players for the qualifiers and for the Final Round in August (19-30) in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo.
In the summer of 2015, Mbah a Moute re-signed with the Kings, but his contract was voided because of a failed physical. He filed a grievance against the team, and the matter was settled. His departure from the Kings led to his signing by the Clippers and a return to Southern California, where he played at UCLA. “It’s been good,” he said of his Clippers stint. “Defend, cut to the basket, make open shots. This team has so many weapons offensively, I try to contribute as much as I can to make sure I’m a threat out there, stretch the floor, make plays and just go out there and do my job.”
Embiid was born in Yaoundé, Cameroon on March 16, 1994. He originally had dreams of being a professional volleyball player, but started playing basketball at age 15 with a close eye on mimicking Hall of Famer center Hakeem Olajuwon of Nigeria. Embiid was discovered at age 16 at a basketball camp hosted by current Los Angeles Clippers forward and Yaoundé native, Luc Mbah a Moute. With Mbah a Moute later serving as a mentor, Embiid moved to the United States at age 16 to play high school basketball. As a senior at The Rock School, a Christian academy in Gainesville, Florida, the five-star recruit led the school to a state championship and signed with University of Kansas.
The National Basketball Association (NBA) and the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) today announced the top 87 boys and girls from 27 African countries who will travel to the first Basketball without Borders (BWB) Africa Camp in Angola, which will be held Aug. 31-Sept. 3 at Pavilhão Multiusos do Kilamba in Luanda. BWB, the NBA and FIBA’s global basketball development and community outreach program, is celebrating its 15th anniversary this summer. BWB Africa, which will be supported by the Angolan Basketball Federation (Federaçao Angolana de Basquetebol) and the Angola Ministry of Youth and Sports, will bring together the top male and female players born in 1999 from across Africa to learn directly from NBA and FIBA players, legends and coaches, including Bismack Biyombo (Orlando Magic; Democratic Republic of the Congo), Eric Bledsoe (Phoenix Suns; U.S.), Luc Mbah a Moute (LA Clippers; Cameroon; BWB Africa 2003), Salah Mejri (Dallas Mavericks; Tunisia), Thabo Sefolosha (Atlanta Hawks; Switzerland), and Cody Zeller (Charlotte Hornets; U.S.).
