The location and roster may have changed, but it was the same old story on the court, as Team Africa were bested 108-97 by Team World in the NBA Africa Game in Johannesburg on Saturday. In the last NBA Africa game which took place two years ago, Team World defeated Team Africa 97-101, and there was little change this time around, as the ‘hosts’ – without injured co-captain Luol Deng and Cameroon phenom Joel Embiid – were outclassed by the travelling party.

The Portland Trail Blazers’ starting shooting guard will participate in NBA Africa Game 2017, the second exhibition matchup sponsored by the NBA in Johannesburg, South Africa. The game, scheduled for Aug. 5 at the Ticketpro Dome, will feature Team Africa vs. Team World in a matchup that will include players from across the NBA. McCollum will play on Team World, which also will include DeMarcus Cousins, Kyle Lowry, Kristaps Porzingis and captains Dirk Nowitzki and Kemba Walker, among others. They will face a team comprised of NBA players who are first-and second-generation Africans, including Luol Deng, Thabo Sefolosha, Serge Ibaka and Victor Oladipo.
Luol Deng and Thabo Sefolosha are the Team Africa captains. Also on the team are Bismack Biyombo, Clint Capela, Gorgui Dieng, Joel Embiid (injured, will not play), Serge Ibaka, Luc Mbah a Moute, Salah Mejri, Emmanuel Mudiay, Victor Oladipo and Dennis Schroder.

Adrian Wojnarowski: “When they looked at what happened last summer, teams and agents knew that without the smoothing in of the cap spike, they put it all in that last year, in the first year, that players like Luol Deng and Timofey Mozgov, players like that were artificially getting an advantage. What’s slowing the market now is players aren’t accepting where they are now financially.”
The Lakers, if they deal Julius Randle in addition to D’Angelo Russell, could end up without at least two of their high draft picks to squeeze out two max salary slots next summer; they dangled an unprotected first-round pick in front of every team with cap room to dump one of the toxic Timofey Mozgov/Luol Deng deals, sources say, and finding no takers, finally flipped Russell and Mozgov to Brooklyn. (Good job, Nets!)
