CHICAGO -- Joakim Noah, Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer will be participating in the NBA's Basketball Without Borders program later this summer.

Boozer heads to Portugal with former teammates Nate Robinson and Vladimir Radmanovic and will share their experiences with players from all across Europe in a program that has become popular with current and former players. That program will last from Aug. 15-18.

Noah and Deng head to Johannesburg, South Africa from August 29-September 1.

"Since its inception, the NBA and FIBA have staged 33 BWB camps in 20 cities in 17 countries," the league said in its release. "More than 140 different current and former NBA/WNBA players have joined with more than 100 NBA coaches to act as mentors for more than 1,900 campers from just over 100 countries, with 27 BWB campers drafted into the NBA."

Noah, Deng and Jimmy Butler have already spent some time traveling all over the world this summer. Noah and Butler visited China while Deng has spent time in both Europe and Australia.
