NBA star Alonzo Gee processes being traded while giving back at home

By John Evenson


West Palm Beach NBA star Alonzo Gee is getting ready for his second annual basketball camp coming up in two weeks, but at the same time he's trying to process the fact he's been traded for the first time in his NBA career. After spending his first four seasons in Cleveland, he was traded by the Cavaleers to the Charlotte Hornets this past Thursday night for their 45th pick in the draft Dwight Powell.


"It's a business you know, I mean it hurt a little bit because obviously I've been (in Cleveland) so long. It has to be for the better, I mean it can't be for the worst for me, I want to make the best out of this opportunity."


Gee seems to make the most out of every opportunity, moving his basketball summer camp to Northwood University this year, hoping to mentor the kids who grew up in his home town.


"It's really special, I can only imagine what they're dreams are. They can be the same as mine, so you know, I just want to help them out as much as I can."


While he gets used to his new NBA city, he's currently building a brand new home in Palm Beach County, so no matter where he plays the former Dwyer high school star takes comfort in knowing exactly where he calls home.


"I'll always be in the Florida in the off-season, this is where I live, this is where I'm from, I would change it for nothing else."


Alonzo Gee's Summer Basketball Camp will be in the Northwood University gym on July 12th, and it's absolutely free. For more information just head to CBS12.com/links.

NBA PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks, top seed in the NBA Eastern Conference, take a 2-0 lead into Brooklyn for today's Game 3 of their first-round playoff series. The Hawks are 6-0 against Brooklyn this season, including the playoffs.

That's one of four NBA playoff games on top today. Later, the Chicago Bulls can earn some rest if they finish a sweep of Milwaukee. Their main man has been Derrick Rose, who had 34 points and eight assists in 48 minutes of Chicago's 113-106 double-overtime victory on Thursday.

Similarly, Golden State can eliminate New Orleans with another victory in the Big Easy. On Thursday, the Warriors roared from 20 points down in the fourth quarter to stun the Pelicans 123-199 in OT. Steph Curry had 40 in logging 44 points in that one.

Tonight's NBA schedule concludes with Portland hosting Memphis as the Grizzlies take a 2-0 lead into the Rose City. The Blazers are looking for a better performance from All-Star guard Damian Lillard, who has shot just 10 of 37 in the first two games. He has missed 10 of his 11 3-point tries.

NHL PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP)-- The Washington Capitals can advance to the second round of the NHL playoffs with a victory over the New York Islanders today. Washington leads the series 3-2. Capitals coach Barry Trotz says winning Game 5 to push the Islanders to the brink of elimination won't have any impact today.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have considerable momentum entering today's Game 5 against Detroit on their home ice. Last time out the Lightning roared from a 2-0 deficit in the final five and a-half minutes in Detroit to beat the Red Wings 3-2 in overtime and even the series at two games apiece.

The Chicago Blackhawks can finish off Nashville with a victory over the Predators tonight at United Center. The Blackhawks lead that series 3-2. Last time out rookie Filip Forsberg had the hat trick as Nashville scored a Game 5 victory on its home ice.

Finally tonight, Daniel Sedin (suh-DEEN') and Vancouver are hoping to draw even in their first-round series against Calgary when they take on the Flames in Game 6 in Calgary.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Mets try to start another winning streak when they continue their weekend Subway Series with the Yankees. All-Star ace Matt Harvey tries to put the Mets back in the win column after the Yankees ended their 11-game winning streak last night. Harvey is nursing a sore ankle. The Yankees have won seven of their last eight. They'll give the ball to CC Sabathia (suh-BA'-thee-uh).

Overall there were seven scheduled day games on the agenda. That said the Kansas City at Chicago game for this afternoon has been postponed because of bad weather.

There are nine more games coming up tonight.
