VIDEO: Tyreke Evans Hosts Basketball Camp for Underprivileged Youth

Amidst the buzz surrounding the Sacramento Kings and their selection of heralded college star Jimmer Fredette in the 2011 NBA Draft, Kings guard Tyreke Evans hosted a youth basketball camp on Thursday and Friday in the Sacramento area.

"This is for some of the kids who couldn't afford to go to a camp," Evans said of the event.  "So I just wanted to come out and support, help them, sponsor them, come to a camp for free.  And me showing up put a smile on their faces."

Evans rebounded shots and played knockout with kids.  He also answered questions asked by camp attendees, coaches and parents. 

The two-day camp, which took place at the Dr. Ephraim Williams Family Life Center in Oak Park, was co-sponsored by not-for-profit vision care insurance provider VSP and the Sacramento chapter of the Positive Coaching Alliance.  Visit PCA Sacramento and VSP on Facebook to find out more about their respective community missions.
