San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green will join four other NBA players in Russia next month as part of the weeklong Basketball without Borders camp.
Joining Green are Andrei Kirilenko, Timofey Mosgov and Marshon Brooks.
Basketball without Borders is a community outreach program by the NBA and FIBA.
The top youth players 19 and under from Asia, Europe, Latin America and Africa, as selected by the NBA, FIBA and participating federations, will train under NBA players and coaches and compete against their peers. NBA players will partner with local community groups to lead daily life-skills sessions focusing on the importance of education, leadership, character development, health and wellness. To promote friendship and diversity, the campers are divided into teams without regard to race and nationality.
It will be the first time the camp will make a stop in Russia.

DeJuan Blair has seemingly struggled with the battle of the bulge since entering the NBA. It has even gotten to the point where San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich quipped about Blair's expanding waist line and his taste for fat-food burgers.

The San Antonio Spurs have announced that they have waived forward Derrick Byars.
Byars was signed out of the D-League by the Spurs in late April and played in two games for the Spurs, averaging five points and 5.5 rebounds per game in under 20 minutes.
The 6-7 forward from Vanderbilt played for the Spurs summer league squad and failed to make much of an impact. Back when...
It was a short-lived time with the San Antonio Spurs for Marcus Denmon after being selected at No. 59 at the 2012 NBA Draft. He spent time with the Spurs Summer League team and soon after, he signed with French team Elan Chalon to continue developing his basketball skills.
But unlike many other late Spurs' draft picks who are stashed away, never to be heard from again...
It's been a more active than normal summer for basketball. The NBA Finals bled right in to the NBA Draft, which bled right in to NBA Free Agency which bled right in the Olympics. Now the Olympics are over and training camp is over a month away. This is officially the NBA's summer doldrums. Because of the relative lack of team activity, writers, sites and blogs...

After falling in their opening games of the 2013 FIBA Eurobasket qualifying round last week, San Antonio Spurs draftee’s Adam Hanga and Davis Bertans got their first taste of victory on Tuesday, as Hanga led Hungary to a win over Austria, while Bertans helped in Latvia’s defeat of the Netherlands.
Hungary (1-1) defeated Austria 81-75 in a close game, and though Hanga wasn’t...
The Spurs have 14 players under contract, one below the NBA maximum.
After a slightly shorter but still grueling NBA schedule, a trip to the Western Conference Finals and leading his team in the Olympics, Tony Parker is finally getting some time off.
Parker posted a couple pictures on his Facebook page showcasing his offseason vacation. I couldn’t tell you where he is, just that he’s in the desert.
The most popular picture is of Tony...
