Cavs legend Mark Price announces local basketball camp

Cleveland Cavaliers great Mark Price announce he'll bring his basketball skills academy to the Westlake City Recreation Center in April.

With the Cleveland Cavaliers celebrating their 50th season, Mark Price has been a familiar face around Northeast Ohio in recent months.

And it appears the Cavs legend doesn't plan on disappearing anytime soon.

On Tuesday, Price took to Twitter to announce he'll be bringing his basketball skills camp to the Westlake Recreation Center from April 14-17. The four-day camp will run from 9 a.m.to 2 p.m. daily and is open to both boys and girls from the ages of 8-14.

Registration, pricing and more information are available at MarkPriceCamps.com. The cost of the camp is $200.

A 4-time All-Star, Price spent the first nine seasons of his 12-year NBA career in Cleveland. In that span, the Georgia Tech product established a reputation as one of the league's most prolific 3-point shooters, connecting on .402 percent of his attempts from long distance, as well as .904 percent of his free throw attempts.

Over the course of his nine seasons with the Cavs, Price averaged 16.4 points and 7.2 assists.

Following the end of his playing career, Price transitioned into coaching and served as an assistant for several NBA teams including the Denver Nuggets, Atlanta Hawks, Golden State Warriors, Orlando Magic and Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets. From 2015-17, he served as the men's basketball head coach for the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.

Over the course of the 2019-20 season, the Cavs -- who retired Price's No. 25 uniform number in 1999 -- have frequently welcomed back their most famous players to celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise.
