MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - NBA veteran Ramon Sessions is resuming his free agency search for a new team, but doing so on the Grand Strand this week at Myrtle Beach High School as he ran his seventh annual basketball camp. Sessions sold out the allotment of spots once again. Ages 5-15 participated this week from Monday through Thursday, but for Sessions, the camp is something that never gets old.
"I grew up like they grew up, and just to come back to the community that did a lot for me, and just to be able to put this on for the kids is a great thing," Sessions said. "It's great, I always look forward to this. During the season I know this is the one time I can relax, see a lot of old faces, a lot of guys I went to high school with, and just come back to the community that did a lot for me."
Sessions also paid tribute to his former high school coach and longtime Seahawk skipper Buddy Rogers, who passed away earlier this year. Each camper received a shirt with the name "Buddy" on the back and the quote "My motivation & inspiration." Rogers coached at Myrtle Beach High for 20 seasons.
In regards to his future, Sessions is currently a free agent, and said that he expects to come to an agreement with a team in the next few weeks.
