Earlier this week, some valid questions about the Kendrick Perkins Basketball Camp arose on social media.

As the only media outlet in Western Mass. that actually cares about the kids and basketball, I decided to do my own research.

I emailed Richard Gray (Kendrick Perkins agent) through Seven1 [sports agency started by Jermaine O’Neal and Tracy McGrady]. As this article is being typed, I haven’t been contacted back by Seven1 or Mr. Gray.

I also reached out to RSJ Sports Marketing. I sent an email and I was contacted back, by phone, this afternoon.

I spoke on the phone with James Raymond and his wife of RSJ Marketing. We spoke for close to 20 minutes.

I informed them about the various but valid questions about the camp.

They both let me know a few things:

  1. This is not a rumor or “cap” 🧢. There will be a camp in late August in Springfield, MA.

  2. They have a few well-known former NBA coaches and players “confirmed”.

  3. Current NBA players will be there but it might be for just one day, over the course of the camp.

  4. There will be a website for the camp that will go live “by this weekend, latest Tuesday”. [As someone that runs a website, we should give them a little more time on that. Its not that easy to maintain a website 🤷🏽‍♂️ but thats the timetable that was said to me 👌🏾]

  5. There are 3 confirmed locations for the camp.

  6. Kendrick Perkins, RSJ Marketing and the other parts of their team are trying to do some positive things in Springfield, in regards to 🏀

  7. RSJ Marketing has connections to local businesses.

Their website (when its live) should be your main source for information about the camp.

FP SPORTS/FP MEDIA should have another update next week.
