While the team he (Miami HEAT Luol Deng) captained lost the game, which became competitive in the end, similar to the NBA All-Star Game, he viewed the experience as a victory.

“The NBA has been taking steps forward [in Africa], and this is a huge step forward,” he said, with Heat assistant coach David Fizdale among those included in the NBA’s contingent of players, coaches and executives.

“The game is just going to keep on growing. I’m just glad we got to this stage.”The fact that we did this, it means we’re stepping forward, and hopefully in the years to come we’ll be able to do it all over the continent.”

Even though official league business hasn’t begun for next season, it hasn’t stopped teams from discussing parameters for trades.

One hot name: New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday. According to sources, around 10 teams are inquiring about his services and one team hot after him is the Denver Nuggets, eager to capitalize on their appearance in the West Finals.

Holiday, an All-Defense performer capable of playing both guard spots, averaged 19.1 points and 6.7 assists for the Pelicans this past season and seemingly could fit in with the Nuggets’ youth and recent experience. He’s under contract for next season with a player option for 2021-22 at $27 million, and many teams believe the Pelicans will be looking to shed some salary going into next season.
