Former NBA great Gary Payton, Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem and Toronto Raptors forward Landry Fields are scheduled to visit Taiwan for NBA 3X, a FIBA-sanctioned three-on-three event, from Aug 25-26.

A maximum of 408 teams are able to register for the event which would earn them ranking points in a global ranking system, according to Bros Sports, one of the local organizers, along with NBA Taiwan and the Chinese Taipei Basketball Association (CTBA).

Apart from the three-on-three competition, a slam dunk contest, a three-point shootout and a skill challenge would also be held.

The event will take place in the central Taiwan city of Taichung from Aug 25-26.

The three former or active NBA players would also participate in a charity event to play basketball with children with rare diseases and the underprivileged children.
