Gerald Henderson and Cody Zeller are among seven players heading to Gran Canaria, Spain next week as part of 2015's Basketball Without Borders program. From June 2-5, the Charlotte Hornets duo will be teaching 50 European children the fundamentals of basketball.
Zeller was part of the program in 2014 when he travelled to Taipei, Taiwan. "I thoroughly enjoyed my experience traveling to Asia last year and I am looking forward to the chance to make lasting impressions on the campers, while also teaching the game that I love," Zeller said in a press release.
This is Henderson's first time with Basketball Without Borders.
Zeller's decision to participate is somewhat interesting, as he's still recovering from a recent shoulder surgery that repaired a tendon and removed bone spurs and scar tissue. How much he's able to contribute physically remains to be seen, but it's hard to fault him for wanting to be part of such an excellent program.
Former Charlotte Bobcat Vladimir Radmanonic will also be in Spain representing the NBA at Basketball Without Borders.
