Former Chicago Bulls player Dennis Rodman is continuing with his so-called "basketball diplomacy."
After returning from his second trip to North Korea this year, Rodman announced he will coach a team of North Korean basketball players to play in two exhibition games against a team from the United States. The games will be held in North Korea in January.
Rodman also announced that he would conduct the first ever television interview with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, who reportedly "wants to change," according to Rodman. Since returning to America, Rodman has repeatedly referred to Kim as a good friend and a good guy.
The first of the two exhibition games will take place on January 8th, Kim Jong-un's birthday, and the second on January 10th. Rodman said he will return to North Korea in December to assemble and train a team. Their opponent has yet to be determined.
"This country is not bad because the marshal (Kim), now he wants to change," said Rodman.
