C.J. Watson is moving from Senegal to South Africa Tuesday, finishing up Sports Enoys, a State Department program, and beginning Basketball With Borders. At a press conference at the US Embassy in Senegal, Watson and WNBA great Chamique Holdsclaw said they're impressed with the quality of local ballers, like this 6'9" 14-year-old.

In South Africa, Watson will join with Nets coach Popeye Jones, former Net, Dikembe Mutombo, and several African players, including Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Luol Deng, Thabo Sefolosha and Serge Ibaka. Watson will held run a four-day basketball camp in Johannesburg, returning September 2. Watson regularly updates his travel via Twitter.
