NBA All-Star Brook Lopez will headline an NBA 3X event at the Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza from Aug 31 to Sept 1.

The Brooklyn Nets center will make a appearance alongside the Brooklyn Nets dance team, the Brooklynettes, and the Suns Gorilla, the official mascot of the Phoenix Suns.

NBA 3X Singapore 2013 presented by Standard Chartered Bank was originally slated to take place from June 21-23. But it was postponed over health concerns as haze blanketed the island. All teams registered to play in the original 3-on-3 portion of event will be eligible to participate in the upcoming tournament.

NBA 3X is the league's global fan development event which combines authentic NBA entertainment and experiences with a 3-on-3 tournament.
