WASHINGTON (KPTV) -
Shaquille O’Neal has had many careers, from basketball hall of famer to movie star to deputy lawman, but his next role is taking him to Cuba.
O’Neal will be joined by Dallas Mavericks Assistant Coach Kaleb Canales, and the two will hold basketball clinics for kids.
Canales started his career in the NBA with the Trail Blazers, eventually serving as the interim head coach in 2012.
A release from the State Department notes that the clinics will show how sports can allow youth to develop academic, leadership, and teamwork skills, adding that O’Neal’s careers on the court and in business will showcase the “importance of social inclusion and respect for diversity” sports can provide.
