Former Jazz guard Jeff Hornacek will participate in the NBA's Basketball Without Borders (BWB) program from Sept. 1-4 in Johannesburg, Africa. The ex-Utah sharpshooter will be joined by former NBA greats Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutombo, Bo Outlaw and Dee Brown.
Hornacek served as a Jazz assistant coach and shooting consultant during the 2010-11 season. He became an assistant after coaches Jerry Sloan and Phil Johnson resigned Feb. 10. Hornacek is expected to return to the Jazz next season. However, he is no longer under contract and cannot sign a new deal until the NBA lockout ends.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of BWB, a partnership between the NBA and FIBA that attempts to spread the reach of basketball while encouraging social change.
