Veteran point guard Malcolm Brogdon and Grant Williams aren’t exactly new to leadership positions as members of the National Basketball Players Association executive committee.

But the Boston Celtics duo will continue to build on that experience from a coaching perspective while assisting NBA Africa, the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) and the Egyptian Basketball Federation as they host the 2022 Basketball Without Borders Africa camp in Egypt. It is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 28 through Wednesday, Aug. 31 at Hassan Mostafa Indoor Sports Complex in Cairo, Egypt.

Per a press release from the NBA, the event is the first time the league and FIBA’s global basketball development and community outreach event is being held in Egypt. It is also the first time it will be held on the continent since 2019 in Senegal.

Williams and Brogdon will be joined by fellow current or retired NBAers Udoka Azubuike, Mo Bamba and NBA Global Ambassador and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer Dikembe Mutombo as well as several NBA coaches and executives.
