NEW YORK (AP) — Tiago Splitter of the NBA champion San Antonio Spurs and Denver's Danilo Gallinari are among the players who will work at the Basketball without Borders camp during All-Star weekend.

Oklahoma City's Steven Adams and Minnesota's Gorgui Dieng also will take part in the Feb. 13-15 camp at Baruch College, the first held in the United States.

The NBA says Thursday it will consist of 39 players between ages 16-18, representing 23 countries, who will work on improving their skills in training sessions, shooting competitions and games.

There have been 39 Basketball Without Borders camps, organized jointly by the NBA and world governing body FIBA. The league says the Global Camp will become an annual All-Star event.
