The Nets will be putting 2,000 basketballs into the hands of young Brooklynites next week. Starting Monday, July 30 and running through Friday, August 3, the Nets will surprise neighborhood youth by distributing basketballs at 25 community courts across the borough.

At each stop, the Nets will leave behind basketballs for local kids to enjoy, in an effort to spread the love of the game, keep kids active, and support Brooklyn basketball culture.

Caris LeVert will be at Edmonds Playground in Fort Greene on Monday to help distribute the balls, and to meet and play with local youth. Brooklyn Nets Team Hype, the interactive group of tumblers, dunkers, and break dancers, will also be on hand.
