San Antonio Spurs superstar Kawhi Leonard will make his first visit to China with a seven-day trip to the country that starts on August 18th. Kawhi will coach some talented young players and host a basketball clinic for migrant students.

Here are more details on Leonard’s trip from ESPN’s Michael C. Wright:

“NBA China announced Wednesday that two-time NBA All-Star Kawhi Leonard will visit China from Aug. 18-24 to support the growth of basketball in the country, and coach top youth talent from the region at The NBA Academy Zhejiang. Leonard will host a basketball clinic in Beijing for select migrant school students as part of the league's celebration of its partnership with CCTV.”

Have fun in China, Kawhi!
