John Lucas sponsoring charity game

HOUSTON — Several NBA players have committed to play a game benefiting the John Lucas Foundation, which provide substance-abuse counseling for athletes. The game will be played on November 20 in Houston, at Delmar Field House. “It’ll be neat for the fans to come out and see,” Lucas said. “It won’t be a celebrity game. It’s going to be a real game. I’m really excited about the competition.”

There are about 20 players committed, including Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Rashard Lewis. Houston Texans’ Andre Johnson and Matt Schaub will also participate, though Lucas would not say if they were going to play. Former NBA players Moses Malone and Robert Horry will coach the teams. “It’s a nice mixture of young players,” Lucas said. “I wanted the young, the old and a little bit of the new, so our fans could see who’s coming and who’s already established.” For more information visit Coach Lucas’ website: http://johnlucasenterprises.com/The_Foundation.html
