CLEVELAND (AP) – Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal and forward Kenneth Faried of the Denver Nuggets will play in the NBA’s exhibition game in South Africa this summer.

Serge Ibaka of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Gorgui Dieng of the Minnesota Timberwolves also will take part in the Aug. 1 game in Johannesburg, the league says Tuesday.
