Cleveland Cavaliers forward John Henson is holding a skills camp for players ranging from third grade to high school freshmen. The camp, held at Sickles High, is Saturday and Sunday (9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day). A T-shirt and lunch are included in the $100 fee.

Jordan Fair, who returned as head coach at Oldsmar Christian this week, is helping run the camp. Other NBA players could serve as volunteers.

Henson, a former star with Gryphons, was the 14th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft. He spent seven seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks before being traded to Cleveland in December.
