Lopez goes to Africa as part of 'NBA Cares'

ESPN.com's Rick Reilly wrote a terrific piece Tuesday about Warriors guard Stephen Curry's journey to Tanzania to help out Reilly's "Nothing But Nets" foundation.

Recently, Nets center Brook Lopez also went over to Africa to do some philanthropic work with the Clinton Foundation as part of "NBA Cares."

Here's a photo of Lopez.

The caption of the photo on the Clinton Foundation website reads:

On August 1, 2013, Brook Lopez of the Brooklyn Nets visits with children at the Anchor Farm in Santhe, Malawi. In Malawi, the Clinton Foundation runs the Anchor Farm Project, which operates five commercial farms that partner with 21,000 neighboring smallholder farmers, providing them with access to quality inputs for maize and soy production as well as training and market access. Brook is part of a delegation that is traveling with President Clinton and Chelsea Clinton to see how Clinton Foundation projects are increasing access to health care and providing economic opportunity to families and communities in Africa.

Lopez is wearing a walking boot in the photo, but is slated to return to basketball activities sometime in August. Later this month, he'll make an appearance at the NBA 3X event in Singapore.
