The NBA is set to become the first U.S. professional sports league to visit Cuba since President Barack Obama ordered diplomatic relations between the countries to be restored. The league will hold a four-day development camp and host clinics for youth from April 23-26. Recently retired two-time MVP Steve Nash, newly elected Hall of Famer Dikembe Mutombo, and former WNBA star Ticha Penicheiro will take part, along with NBA coaches Quin Snyder of Utah and James Borrego of Orlando. The league said it will make an official announcement on Tuesday.
Obama and the five Wizards – John Wall, Bradley Beal, Paul Pierce, Kevin Seraphin and Garrett Temple — participated in a shooting game on the White House basketball court with a group of children. Wall came away impressed with the Chicago southpaw. “It was fun. [Obama’s] got the weirdest jump shot release but today he showed off,” the all-star point guard said. “He showed off today. He hit two game-winners so he showed off a little bit today.”
