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.

Green is no stranger to international basketball, as he played for Union Olimpija in Slovenia during the lockout last summer before earning a starting spot with the Spurs in the regular season and into the playoffs.

 

Aside from getting a chance to rest easy with his contract signed, Green has spent his summer working out, traveling to Vegas to support the Summer League team, was photographed as part of a magazine feature story and has developed a pair of custom Danny Green mouthguards with Iceberg Guards.

That's a far cry from playing overseas, but his schedule is about to get busy very soon with Basketball without Borders and Spurs training camp.
