Mumbai: NBA star Shawn Marion will travel to India to support the continued growth of basketball in the country by conducting youth clinics and interacting with local fans. Marion will attend the Reliance Foundation Jr. NBA program at the ITL Public School, Dwarka, in New Delhi on Friday to instruct and engage with the boys and girls participating in the program.

He will also visit Mumbai for the inauguration of NBA’s National Talent Hunt ACG-NBA Jump on Saturday before making a live television appearance on Sony SIX’s NBA morning show “Around the Hoop” the following day.  

 

“I’m really look forward to visiting India for the first time,” said Marion.  “It will be an incredible experience to interact with young Indian boys and girls,” he added.

Marion, a four time NBA All-Star, won an NBA Championship with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011. The six feet and seven inches tall forward from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, was selected ninth overall by the Phoenix Suns in the 1999 NBA Draft. He was last with Cleveland Cavaliers before announcing retirement in 2015 after 16 seasons in NBA.
