A number of NBA players, including Washington Wizards star John Wall, will participate in an exhibition game in Harrisburg.
With the league in a lockout since July 1, many of its stars have taken to the road to play in exhibition contests. Their next stop will be the Kimber Gym at Harrisburg High on Thursday. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
"We're delighted to have the opportunity to bring this level of talent to town to play our Harrisburg Horizon and EBA All-Stars," said Dick Anzolut, president of the Eastern Basketball Alliance's Harrisburg Horizon. "The lockout has made it possible for fans, who previously were unable to attend games, to watch the action in their own hometown."
Expected to play for the NBA team are Wall; Kemba Walker, Charlotte Bobcats; Jeff Green, Boston Celtics; Michael Beasley, Miami Heat; and DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings. More players may be added.
