For the second year in a row, Jodie Meeks is holding a shooting camp at Bryan Station High School. Although he isn't from Lexington, he hopes to continue offering camps for years to come.

Whether they're learning the fundamentals or just having a Q&A with the NBA star, these kids are getting an opportunity of a lifetime.

"When I was little I loved going to camps with college players and pro players," Meeks admitted, "I always wanted to do it -- just to give back and teach about the game ... I'm still learning as it is and I've been playing my whole life."

The camp will continue through Wednesday, June 20. Meeks also plans to hold another camp in July. At that time, he'll be a free agent.

"I talked to our GM (Philadelphia) and Doug Collins and they said they definitely want me back," Meeks said.

The decision will be Meeks'. He will be an unrestricted free agent starting July 1. He said money will be factor in his decision, but just as important is finding a team where he can establish himself.

"If Philly's not the right place for me then I want to go to the right fit for me," Meeks explained, "I really don't know what to expect because I've talked to a lot of guys that have been through it and they say just be patient and faithful."
