Utah Jazz assistant coach Johnnie Bryant to participate in first Basketball Without Borders in Israel

Last week, Utah Jazz wing Thabo Sefolosha went to South Africa to participate in a Basketball Without Borders camp there.

Next week, Jazz assistant coach and former University of Utah guard Johnnie Bryant will do the same in Israel.

NBA, WNBA and FIBA representatives will conduct camps for the top 62 boys and girls ages 17 and under from 22 countries. The event is touted as an opportunity to bring hundreds of youth together from Christian, Druze, Jewish and Muslim communities.

This will mark the first time such a camp will be held in Israel. It will fall under the umbrella of Basketball Without Borders Europe, which has done camps for the last 15 years.

It marks Bryant’s second time participating in Basketball Without Borders, as he was part of the contingent that went to Angola last summer.
