Damjan Rudež hosts first basketball camp in hometown of Zagreb

It’s the offseason and summertime which often means professional athletes are both giving back and having camps. The latest to do so is Croatian Damjan Rudež, who wrapped up his first year in the NBA with the Pacers this past April.

Back home in Zagreb, Croatia, Rudež held his inaugural basketball camp. That’s always special for these guys. On top of that, about 100 campers took part.

“Proud to say that our first DR Camp was a huge success! 100 kids with 8 coaches and endless amount of fun! Can’t wait for next year,” he wrote in a post on Instagram.

Paul George will be holding his camp in Indy July 11-12; George Hill is planning to have one in Fishers next month; C.J. Watson has one scheduled for July 16-18 in Las Vegas; Solomon Hill’s is set for July 20-24 in Tucson, Arizona.

Rudež, who went undrafted in the 2008 NBA Draft, signed a three-year deal with the Pacers almost one year ago (the final year is a team option).
