Photos: J.J. Redick hosts basketball camp for area children

On Saturday, the veteran guard hosted 80 at-risk children for a basketball camp at RDV SportsPlex.

With some help from Orlando Magic community ambassadors Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw, Magic guard J.J. Redick held a free basketball camp at RDV SportsPlex on Saturday to promote NBA Fit Week. Eighty at-risk children from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida were chosen to participate in the clinic, which Redick put together with the assistance of the J.J. Redick Foundation.

"Big Brothers Big Sisters is an organization that aligns with the vision of the J.J. Redick Foundation: that every child deserves to have a positive role model and influence on their lives," Redick said.

In addition to teaching basketball fundamentals, the Duke grad gave a lesson in leadership and the importance of a good education.

The camp seems to have done Redick some good as well. In his two games since hosting it, the veteran matched a career-high with 31 points against the Detroit Pistons on Sunday and set a new personal best with 10 assists against the Brooklyn Nets on Monday.
