Jay Satur - Raptors.com
A group of Raptors have made the trek to Africa for the better part of August, beginning with a stop in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Raptors president and general manager Masai Ujiri, head coach Dwane Casey, assistant coach Jama Mahlalela and forward Amir Johnson are all on hand for the first leg of the trip to take part in a Basketball Without Borders camp.
Thanks to our excellent crew from Open Gym, we've got some great photos and video to share below. Much more to come from this amazing journey!
Day 1: Landing In Johannesburg
Coach Casey began his trip with a visit to the Apartheid Museum.
The day concluded with a reception for all involved in this year's Basketball Without Borders Africa camp.
Masai Ujiri poses with legendary centre Dikembe Mutombo, NBA Chief Strategic and Financial Officer Jason Cahilly, NBA Vice President for Development in Africa Amadou Gallo Fall and NBA Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum.
Day 2: Camp Opens
Amir Johnson then headed with a group from the camp to the SOS Children's Village. Regardless of the continent, Amir remains a huge hit with kids!
