Exum, Ingles and Guthrie to Participate in First Basketball without Borders Camp in Australia

SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz players Danté Exum and Joe Ingles and manager of basketball strategy/technology Zach Guthrie will be participating in the first Basketball without Borders (BWB) Asia Camp in Australia, which will be held June 23-26 at Dandenong Basketball Stadium in Melbourne. 

BWB Asia will bring together the top 45 male players born between 1999 and 2001 from 17 countries around the Asia-Pacific region to learn directly from National Basketball Association (NBA) and International Basketball Federation (FIBA) players, legends and coaches.

Exum and Ingles are both members of the Australian National Team. Exum, the 6-6 guard who was the No. 5 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, was born in Melbourne and attended Lake Ginninderra College for his high school education in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Sport.

Ingles, who was born in Happy Valley, Australia, also attended the Australian Institute of Sport and played in the 2014 FIBA World Cup as part of “The Boomers” national team. Ingles, a 6-8 forward entering his third season with Jazz, has played professionally since the age of 18 in Australia, Spain, Israel and the NBA.

Guthrie has coaching responsibilities in basketball strategy/technology. Entering his second season on the Jazz staff, Guthrie spent three years with the Orlando Magic as the manager of advanced scouting and two seasons with the San Antonio Spurs. The San Antonio native graduated from the University of Texas with a bachelor’s degree in business.

The Jazz trio will be joined by Aron Baynes (Detroit Pistons), Khris Middleton (Milwaukee Bucks) and Patty Mills (San Antonio Spurs); former NBA players Bruce Bowen and David Robinson; and coaches Jay Larranaga (Boston Celtics) and Jerry Stackhouse (Toronto Raptors), among many others.

In addition to working with the campers on the court, NBA, FIBA and Australia’s National Basketball League players and coaches will lead extensive community outreach events through NBA Cares that will leave a lasting legacy in Melbourne and Geelong. These social responsibility efforts will focus on youth basketball development and teaching the values of the game, including teamwork, integrity and respect, on and off the court. Activities will include a Jr. NBA youth basketball clinic, an NBA Cares court dedication, a Jr. NBA wheelchair basketball exhibition game and clinics and life skills sessions with campers.

Australian coaches will have the opportunity to learn from Guthrie and other coaches at an international coaching clinic June 25 at Dandenong Basketball Stadium.

BWB, which is the NBA’s and FIBA’s global basketball development and community outreach program, is celebrating its 15th anniversary this summer. Since 2001, BWB has reached more than 2,500 participants from 130 countries and territories, with 37 campers drafted into the NBA. Twenty-one former BWB campers were on opening-night rosters for the 2015-16 NBA season.
