On Monday, the NBA announced NBA Africa, a new entity focused on league business within the continent. NBA commissioner Adam Silver said the company is valued at “nearly $1 billion.” “Much of that valuation comes from the enormous optimism we see in this brand in Africa and our opportunity to bring content directly to the people of the many countries of Africa,” Silver said. Investors include former NBA players Dikembe Mutombo, Grant Hill, Luol Deng, and Helios Fairfax Partners, an investment holding company that works with African businesses.
Someone who has known Harding since their college days together at Duke is the former NBA star and now president of the South Sudan Basketball Federation, Luol Deng. “I can sincerely say that more than her basketball pedigree, it’s who she is as a person that is our biggest win here,” the ex-Great Britain player said. “She’s consistently expressed an interest in helping grow the game of basketball in South Sudan, and I’m genuinely grateful to know our women will have an amazing person leading their development and journey onto the world stage.”

Do you see any comparisons between Randle’s emergence and what you were able to get out of Luol Deng with the Bulls? Thibodeau: Totally different type of players, but I felt the same way from coaching against them. When you played against the Bulls, Luol was a guy that, if you didn’t pay attention to him, could really hurt you. And I thought he had great value in that, that he did a lot of things that weren’t measured necessarily by statistics, but could help your team win. And I think with Julius, the same thing: You always saw that he played hard, he had the ability to go off the dribble, he could play back to the basket, always a pretty good midrange shooter. Then adding the 3, and then his defense has really improved. But also, his playmaking. He’s playing very, very unselfishly. And he loves to be in the gym; he’s a great worker, but to see where he’s gone — obviously his numbers speak for themself, but his impact on winning has been huge.
