Robin Lopez of the New Orleans Pelicans will be joined by Memphis Grizzlies swingman Quincy Pondexter at NBA 3X Singapore 2013 presented by Standard Chartered bank. New Orleans Pelicans Point Guard Greivis Vásquez was initially scheduled to attend the event but – due to precautionary medical reasons following surgery on both his ankles – has not been cleared to travel.
In lieu of Vásquez, Pondexter will make his debut appearance at an NBA 3X event this summer at NBA 3X Singapore 2013 presented by Standard Chartered Bank.
“I’m excited about traveling this summer to Singapore for the first time. I’ve heard great things about the country and can’t wait to interact with the fans and see some of the local talent out there”, said Pondexter.”
Pondexter is a third-year swingman from the University of Washington, where he ranks as the all-time leader in games played (136 games) and career home wins (64 games), earning All-Pacific First-Team honors in the process. Pondexter currently plays for the Memphis Grizzlies, who made the Western Conference Finals for the very first-time in franchise history this NBA season.
