The 2016 #DengTop50 camp opened up today at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre in London, England, for the third year since the reform of Luol Deng’s Camp to a Top 50 rankings format.
The #DengTop50 features the highest level of players playing in the UK this season that are currently still to confirm their basketball commitments following high school education. The ranking system begins at the four-day camp in London and will continue throughout the season.

The four-day camp culminates in an All-Star game, where the Top 20 players on the camp battle for the final bragging rights of the summer, on Saturday 27th August at 2.30pm (free entry).
Steve Vear, Camp Director, is pleased to see the camp return and expand the basketball experience for the players.
“It is great to be back at the #DengTop50 camp this summer,” he said. “We have expanded the camp this year to add a number of features assisting the players in their development during and following the camp. We welcome back Don Showalter to join Joe Mantegna and Oklahoma City Thunder Assistant Coach Royal Ivey to lead a group of great coaches throughout the four days.
“Jacob Ross, Luol’s Performance Coach, is joining us on camp this year to deliver Strength and Conditioning, Nutrition and Recovery Workshops throughout the camp.
“This year’s camp will also feature 3×3 basketball in a competitive setup for the first time allowing the players to experience a different style play next to traditional 5v5 basketball.”
