I am honored to represent BAL as a world league ambassador. As we begin, we will follow some of the best club teams in Africa and hope to help BAL expand its presence worldwide.

Deng is twice the NBA All-Star (2012, 2013). He was the winner of the 2007 NBA Sportsmanship Award and was named to the First NBA All-Rookie 2005 Team.
