Island Hoops, a Sint Maarten youth basketball academy, presents the 2nd Annual Iman Shumpert Basketball Skills Camp at Melford Hazel Sports Complex on Soualiga Road, located in the Sucker Garden neighborhood, September 6 and 7 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in St. Maarten. The sports camp is free, and all young basketball players (general ages 6-17) are encouraged to attend, dressed to play and ready to learn and have fun. Local fireman and youth organizer Paul Bell founded Island Hoops to give young athletes the opportunity to continue to develop their basketball skills and grow as a player. The sports camp was made possible by local businesses and citizens working together to make this free and available to all.

Anthony Davis scored 18 points and teamed with Kenneth Faried to dominate the inside, leading the U.S. national team to a 101-71 victory over Slovenia on Tuesday in its final exhibition game before the FIBA World Cup of Basketball. Faried finished with 14 points for the Americans, who next head to Bilbao, Spain, for their tournament opener Saturday against Finland. The defending world champions also will face Turkey, New Zealand, the Dominican Republic and Ukraine in pool play. AP
A matchup with Spain, and its big men of Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka, wouldn't come until the gold-medal game on Sept. 14 in Madrid. The Americans picked a bigger team than usual after years of playing small, perhaps with Spain in mind, and appear capable of looking eye-to-eye with anyone. "We just try to make sure that whatever we do, we do together, because we know it's going to be tough in the tournament," Davis said. AP
The U.S. missed five of its first six free-throw attempts but got plenty more chances, finishing 29 of 46 at the line. Slovenia was just 10 of 17. Phoenix Suns star Goran Dragic had only six points on 3-of-11 shooting as one of the many Slovenians saddled with foul problems. His brother, Zoran, led Slovenia with 16 points. AP
Larry Drew said he was "blindsided" by the way he lost his job as head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. Commenting at length for the first time since he was fired by the Bucks' new ownership June 30, Drew said his firing was "definitely mystifying." The veteran coach lasted just one season in Milwaukee and was replaced by former Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Even as Drew was taking part in draft preparations with the Bucks management staff in late June, team owners Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry were starting their talks with Kidd. Word leaked out that the Nets had given permission to Milwaukee to speak to Kidd, without the knowledge of either Bucks general manager John Hammond or Drew. Kidd was signed to a three-year, $15 million contract a few days later. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"The whole Jabari thing, putting me in that position, I don't think it was very professional," Drew said. "I wish it wouldn't have happened that way, but it did. "If I had been a new coach, I might have reacted differently (to the firing). But because I've been in this so long and I've had friends who have had these type things happen to them, I was OK." Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired forward Jared Dudley and a 2017 conditional first round draft pick from the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for forward Carlos Delfino, center Miroslav Raduljica and a 2015 second round draft pick (previously received from the L.A. Clippers), General Manager John Hammond announced today. “Jared is a great teammate, I thank him for all his hard work on and off the floor on our behalf,” Clippers President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach Doc Rivers said. “Jared is a true professional and we wish him all the best in Milwaukee.” Inside Hoops
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed the 31st selection of the 2014 NBA Draft, Damien Inglis, to a multi-year contract, General Manager John Hammond announced today. A native of Cayenne in French Guiana, Inglis played last season with Roanne as a rookie in France’s top league, Pro A, where he averaged 4.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 27 games. Inglis grabbed a career-best 11 rebounds vs. Strasbourg and scored in double figures in three straight games in December. Inside Hoops
