Basketball Spotlight Headed To John Lucas Future Of The Game Camp
The 2nd Annual John Lucas Future of the Game camp is looking for the nation's best 2019 and 2020 prospects. The camp is being held September 1 and 2 in Hampton, VA at the Boo Williams facility. Coach Lucas was the #1 overall pick in 1976 for the Houston Rockets, he has been an NBA head coach, and he has developed or advised countless NBA players. All told, Coach Lucas has been involved with the NBA for more than 35 years.
Known as one of the world's premier teachers, Coach Lucas's camps provide first-rate instruction from Coach Lucas himself as well as from other highly qualified coaches. Additionally, in terms of talent, Coach Lucas's camps always attract the best of the best.
Besides the instruction and the opportunity to measure yourself against the nation's best players, Coach Lucas's camps also provide a high level of exposure. Not only is Coach Lucas on the selection committee for the McDonalds All American game, but he personally selects the players for the NBA Players' Association Top 100 camp for the best high school players in the country. But in addition to Coach Lucas, his camps typically prove to be a magnet for a who's who of national media experts who cover this age group (Clark Francis of Hoop Scoop, Van Coleman of Hot 100 Hoops, Spencer Pulliam of Dunk Dog, and Basketball Spotlight).
This Future of the Game East Camp is one of only two camps that Coach Lucas runs for this age group, and the next one won't take place until Las Vegas in the Spring of 2013. For more information, please email his director of scouting, Brian Merritt, at email@example.com.
