A Kings legend and other current Kings players will be holding several basketball camps in Sacramento this summer.
Mike Bibby is hosting his youth camp from June 17 to 20 in Natomas. The camp, which is for ages six to 16, will include tips from the former King on form shooting and repetition, ball-handling skills, defense, passing and conditioning and more.
Bibby has been out of the league since 2012 when he last suited up for the New York Knicks. Most recently, Bibby has been serving as an assistant coach for his son Michael Bibby's Shadow Mountain High School team in Phoenix.
Bibby spent just over six seasons with the Kings in the golden years. His best season statistically came in 2004-05 when he averaged 19.6 points, 6.8 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game. (He did average 21 points per game the following season, but most of his other stats dropped.) And of course, he hit quite possibly the biggest shot in Kings history.
Bibby's Youth Skills Camp is $150 for the first 100 kids and $175 for all after. To register, click here.
The DeMarcus Cousins Nike Elite Skills Camp will take place from June 18 to 20 at Sacramento High School and is for ages seven to 16.
Those who attend will receive instruction from the region's "top coaches as well as DeMarcus Cousins himself." Cousins will "be co-directing and coaching hands on for the entirety of the camp while building relationships with every single camper."
The fee for Cousins' camp is $159 and you can register here.
Jason Thompson will hold his JT Elite Basketball Camp twice in the coming summer months. The camp is open for kids in first grade all the way through grade 12 and will be held in Rocklin.
The first camp will be held from June 30 to July 3 ($200, or $180 if enrolled by June 15.) The second camp will be from Aug. 4 to 8 ($250, or $225 is enrolled by July 20).
At the camp, kids will learn how to "define and develop specific techniques to perform at an elite basketball level. They will endure strength and condition training, agility, delivering under pressure, nutrition and camaraderie."

Isaiah Thomas is hosting a youth camp in Rocklin from July 28 to July 31. His Youth Skills Clinic is open to ages six to 16 and will cover similar skills that Bibby's camp will go over. Those who attend are said to receive 12 hours of training with Thomas.
"I love doing it just because I was in their position at one point and to get somebody you look up to show you how to do things is a blessing and I feel like I'm obligated to do that," Thomas recently told Grant Napear on KHTK 1140.
Thomas' camp is $175 for the first 100 who register and $225 for all of those after. For more information and to register, click here.
