UPDATE:Palestine in America originally reported that Rudy Gay went on the trip to Israel. Politico and several other main stream media outlets reported the same thing. However, the Nation’s Dave Zirin reported today, Gay did not go on the trip. There is no indication why he chose not to go on the trip. For more information about the NBA players’ trip to Israel listen to the Electronic Intifada’s latest podcast featuring Zirin.

Sheldon Adelson, a Pro-Israel billionaire donor from Las Vegas, flew a group of NBA players to Israel in another attempt to hinder Boycott Divestment and Sanctions efforts.

The effort is being led by Sacramento Kings forward Omri Casspi. He was joined by his teammates, DeMarcus Cousins and Caron Butler.Dallas Mavericks’ Chandler Parsons, Cleveland Cavaliers’ Iman Shumpert, New Orleans Pelicans Tyreke Evans  and Alan Anderson of the Washington Wizards joined them on the trip as well.

 The trip was approved by NBA commissioner Adam Silver.

The Jewish Press reports:

The players will be the guests of two major events, the first hosted by HaPoel Jerusalem and the second by Maccabi Tel Aviv, scheduled for Sunday and Wednesday, respectively.

The players will also tour Israel and attend several charity events organized by NBA Cares, the league’s global community outreach initiative.
