    Not sure where to put it so hopefully it's cool in the NBA Dish.

    Team Great Britain-(Luol Deng, Pops Mensah-Bonsu and co) will be camping in Houston this summer to prepare for the Olympics.
    They have a bunch of games in Htown as well.

    True, that makes sense.

    I think Motiejunas is in the prelim. Lithuania squad.

    A bunch of them but not all. It would be understandable given the sizable African population in the U.K.

    I know Pops loved his time in Houston and so would be glad to hold camp here. Luol isn't too familiar with Houston but he is looking forward to it. He's the one that alerted me to the news about the team camping in Houston.

    Kelenna Azubuike apparently won't be on the team. His passport request was denied.
