Coach Saintignon's Orange County Magic basketball camp opened this next session with several NBA players in the gym working with Coach Saintignon.
Former Los Angeles Clipper and Portland Trailblazer, Chris Kaman is in camp working out and being evaluated by the Coach for a spot on a Chinese Basketball Association team. The 7 foot tall center also had an outstanding collegiate career at Central Michigan University.
Also in camp is former Brooklyn Net, Jerome Jordan who is in camp for workouts as he works on extending his playing career. Jordan, originally from Janica, has also played in China as well as with several NBA teams including the New Orleans Pelicans, the Memphis Grizzlies and The New York Knicks.
Keeping the pro athlete theme going this week are also Mark Hill and Trey Ziegler. Hill starred at Cal State Northridge before moving on to play pro ball in Mexico with Los Mochis. Ziegler, a point guard out of Texas Christian University is on hand to sharpen his skills in preparation for the step up into the pro ranks.
It is a full week at the camp, made even more special and intensive by the presence of these top level athletes.
