The NBA has a long history in Africa and opened its African headquarters in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2010. Opening-night rosters for the 2018-19 season featured 13 African-born players, and there are more than 80 current and former NBA players from Africa or with direct family ties to the continent, including Hall of Famers Hakeem Olajuwon (Nigeria) and Dikembe Mutombo (DRC). Africa is also home to Jr. NBA programming across 14 countries, Basketball Without Borders Africa camps, and The NBA Academy Africa, an elite basketball training center for the top male and female prospects.
