Phoenix Suns forward Cam Johnson will be coaching some of the top prospects from the Asia-Pacific region at a Basketball Without Borders camp in Australia.

The camp that starts on Sunday across four days will have Johnson coach alongside college teammate and Chicago Bulls guard Coby White, plus Cleveland Cavaliers center Jarrett Allen, Dallas Mavericks wing Josh Green and four other NBA assistant coaches.

The event running through the NBA, FIBA and Basketball Australia (BA) will host some of the top prospects from more than 15 countries. It is the 12th edition of the Basketball Without Borders Asia camp, one that Oklahoma City Thunder guard Josh Giddey participated in back in 2018.

Basketball Without Borders started in 2001, and since then, there have been 64 basketball camps in 30 different countries. There are 41 NBA players that were on opening night rosters last season who also were campers at Basketball Without Borders.

Johnson continues his time this summer working with younger basketball players, as he hosted his second annual CJ23 Invitational 3-on-3 Tournament in the Valley late July.
