The NBA will host a basketball development camp in Cuba later this month, making it the first major American sports league to conduct official business there since the thaw in U.S.-Cuba relations.

The four-day clinic in Havana, which starts on April 23, will be sponsored by the NBA and FIBA, basketball’s international governing body. The camp will be led by the Cuban men’s and women’s national teams, former NBA players Steve Nash and Dikembe Mutombo and former WNBA player Ticha Penicheiro.

In addition, the league plans to invite two players and one coach from Cuba to an upcoming Basketball Without Borders camp, a community outreach program. It also will send Orlando Magic coach James Borrego and Utah Jazz coach Quin Snyder, among other NBA assistant coaches and team executives, for a training camp with the Cuban national teams.
