Seven-time NBA Champion Robert Horry will visit India this month to celebrate the 2018-19 NBA season tip-off with fans and interact with the country's top prospects at The NBA Academy India in New Delhi.
"I'm excited to return to India to work with some of the most promising talent the country has to offer and celebrate what will certainly be an electrifying NBA season," said Horry.
"I understand the game has made huge strides since my last visit to India in 2012, and I can't wait to see this for myself."
Horry, a 6'7" inches tall forward from the University of Alabama, was selected 11th overall by the Houston Rockets in the 1992 NBA Draft.
Horry was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team in 1993 and won two of his seven NBA Championships with the Houston Rockets in 1994 and 1995. He also won titles with the Los Angeles Lakers (2000-2002) and the San Antonio Spurs (2005, 2007).
Since 2006, more than 30 active and retired NBA and WNBA players have visited India with the NBA, including Sim Bhullar, Bruce Bowen, Muggsy Bogues, Chris Bosh, Swin Cash, Tamika Catchings, Seth Curry, Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard, Brian Shaw, Robin Lopez, Jason Richardson, Kevin Durant, and Brook Lopez.
