The adidas Eurocamp is an official preparation camp for the NBA Draft and the only one established outside the United States. For three days, the best international players aged 18 to 22 will compete alongside current or former NBA players and coaches under the eyes of NBA and EuroLeague team personnel, coaches, scouts, and agents.
Over its 15 previous editions, adidas Eurocamp has produced more than 150 former and future NBA and EuroLeague players. Notable alumni include Goran Dragic (Chicago Bulls), Lu Dort (Oklahoma City Thunder) and Danilo Gallinari (Boston Celtics), as well as Bogdan Bogdanovic (Atlanta Hawks), Jusuf Nurkic (Portland Trail Blazers), Jaylen Brown (Boston Celtics), but also Frenchmen Evan Fournier (New York Knicks), Rudy Gobert (Minnesota Timberwolves), Guerschon Yabusele (Real Madrid) and Andrew Albicy (Gran Canaria).
Currently, 41 adidas Eurocamp alumni hold contracts with NBA franchises and 71 play for EuroLeague teams.
For this 16th edition, the players will be coached by Bill Bayno, assistant coach of the Detroit Pistons and Gianluca Pascucci, adidas Eurocamp’s Scouting Director.
Tony Parker will also be on-site helping guide and mentor Eurocamp attendees. The NBA star and former San Antonio Spurs guard says «Eurocamp is such a special place for these kids. Starting in a European league myself, supporting this camp and being a part of their journey at this stage is really close to my heart.»
