Perry Jones Talks Offseason, Helps Kid’s Camp

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Perry Jones met with around 75 campers as part of a Thunder youth basketball junior camp on Tuesday, July 29.

Jones helped kids with passing, dribbling and other basketball skills.

The 22 year old recently underwent surgery on his right knee and is currently healing from that operation.

The Thunder initially announced that the second year forward would miss 4-6 weeks after the surgery.

Jones says he’s currently dealing with the injury day by day and that he wishes he could play as soon as possible.

With the loss of Thabo Sefalosha, Caron Butler and Derek Fisher, Jones could see more playing time this year.

The former Baylor star says he hopes to get a lot of new minutes and that he’ll continue to work hard to earn┬áhis time on the court.

Jones played in 62 games last year, averaging 3.5 points a game and nearly two rebounds per game.

Watch the video above to see Perry play with the Thunder youth campers and talk surgery, his career, the summer league, his new rookie teammates and new OKC assistant Darko Kajakovic.
