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.
