They are among the 73 boys and girls from Australia, China, Korea and New Zealand who will be part of the camp.

Current NBA players Malik Beasley (Denver Nuggets), Andrew Nicholson (Brooklyn Nets) and Garrett Temple (Sacramento Kings) will join former WNBA player Zheng Haixia (the first Chinese WNBA player), NBA assistant coaches Ryan Bowen (Denver Nuggets), Charles Klask (Detroit Pistons), Bob Thornton (Sacramento Kings) and FIBA coach Ronald Cass to coach the 17 and 18-year old campers, who were selected by their respective basketball federations.

Players and coaches will lead the campers through a variety of activities on and off the court, including movement efficiency, positional skill development, shooting and skills competitions, 5-on-5 games, and daily life skills seminars focusing on health, leadership and communication. One boy and one girl will be named Asia Pacific Team Camp MVPs at the conclusion of the camp.

"We are grateful for the continued support of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) and Nike,” said NBA China CEO, David Shoemake.

The camp has previously been held in Melbourne (2011) and Nanjing, China (2013 and 2015).
