WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama will honor the WNBA champion Seattle Storm at the White House next week.

The White House says team members will also hold a basketball clinic for local kids during their June 29 visit and join the president in a service project.

The Storm beat the Atlanta Dream in September to become 2010 champions with a three-game sweep of the WNBA finals.
