BELGRADE, Serbia -- The NBA held its annual Basketball Without Borders Europe camp last week, inviting 40 of the top 2001-born prospects from the continent to go through drills and 5-on-5 action in front of every NBA team. Campers were helped along by a handful of current and former NBA players -- Boban Marjanovic, Nikola Jokic, Frank Kaminsky and Gary Harris, to name a few -- as well NBA coaches, headlined by Gregg Popovich.
BWB is an outstanding opportunity for young prospects to learn from experts and showcase their talent outside of the national team and club settings. We attended all four days of the camp, driving back and forth between Belgrade and Novi Sad, where the Under-16 European Championships were held.
Which prospects stood out the most in 5-on-5 action?
