adidas' NBA Pre-Draft Camp to Take Place June 10-12 in Treviso, Italy, Marks Tenth Anniversary

PORTLAND , Ore. / HERZOGENAURACH, Germany (June 4, 2012) – adidas today announced the final player roster for adidas EUROCAMP, where the top international basketball players train in the only officially sanctioned pre-NBA Draft camp outside of the United States.

Taking place in Treviso, Italy June 10-12, the camp brings together the best up-and-coming international basketball talent and offers a platform for them to connect with former and current NBA coaches and players.

“As I look back at my road to the NBA, I really appreciate the opportunity I had at Eurocamp to showcase my talent to NBA executives and the basketball community,” said Serge Ibaka, Oklahoma City Thunder forward-center and 2008 EUROCAMP participant. “As basketball's popularity continues to grow worldwide, the talent at adidas EUROCAMP gets better every year and it's a great place for teams as they prepare for the NBA draft.”

More than 45 early entries and draft-eligible participants will play in adidas EUROCAMP 2012 including projected 2012 NBA Draft picks Evan Fournier (France) and Tomas Satoransky (Czech Republic). Former adidas EUROCAMP participants include 56 NBA Draft picks and more than 75 NBA players including Danilo Gallinari (Denver Nuggets), Nicolas Batum (Portland Trail Blazers) and Andrea Bargnani (Toronto Raptors). Nearly 20 former EUROCAMP participants currently hold NBA contracts and more than 60 currently play Euroleague basketball.

“adidas EUROCAMP is celebrating its tenth anniversary this June with the top international basketball talent in the world,” said Lawrence Norman, adidas vice president of Global Basketball. “International players continue to impact the NBA as the game of basketball grows every year and we are proud to work with the next wave of international prospects.”

Special guests at this year's camp will include three-time NBA Champion and Hall of Famer Kevin McHale, Danilo Gallinari, Nic Batum and former college standout and long-time European professional Trajan Langdon. The Under-20 Men's Basketball National Teams from Russia, France and Australia will also participate.

In 2011, adidas EUROCAMP participants included three top 2011 NBA Draft picks including Jonas Valanciunas of Lithuania (5th overall/Toronto Raptors), Jan Vesely of the Czech Republic (6th overall/Washington Wizards) and Bismack Biyombo of the Republic of Congo (7th overall/Sacramento Kings - traded to Charlotte Bobcats).

adidas EUROCAMP welcomes Houston Rockets director of scouting Artūras Karnišovas as the new camp director and Minnesota Timberwolves assistant coach Bill Bayno as the new coaching director.

adidas EUROCAMP will be held at La Ghirada Sports Complex - “SportCity” in Treviso, Italy.
