NEW YORK (AP) — Dennis Rodman is going back to North Korea, and he says he will bring a team of former NBA players with him.

Days after returning from his second trip to visit Kim Jong Un — in which he held the leader’s newborn baby — Rodman announced plans to stage two exhibition games there in January.

Touting his friendship with Kim Jong Un and criticizing President Barack Obama for not talking to him, Rodman says Monday he will go back to North Korea in December to help select local players for the game. He hopes to have stars such as former Chicago teammate Scottie Pippen and Karl Malone play.

Rodman, holding a cigar and wearing the shirt of a vodka company and a hat of a betting one that is funding the event, says Kim Jong Un has asked him to train his players to compete in the 2016 Olympics and offered to allow the Hall of Famer to write a book about him.
