It’s been a busy off-season for the Kentucky Mavericks. They relocated to Owensboro (from Louisiana), switched leagues (from the American Basketball Association to the Premier Basketball League), picked up the #1 draft pick (Leslee Smith), and moved into a new training facility (817 W 1st Street) in Owensboro.
Now that they are settled in, the Mavs are hosting their rookie/free agent camp at their training facility on Saturday, November 21st. The camp is open to all players on Saturday and selected players will be invited back for the invite-only camp on Sunday.
The four time National Champions have had four all-league players, a Rookie of the Year, and an MVP come from their rookie/free agent camps in the past.
There will be many opportunities for players at the camp. Coaches, Agents, General Managers and affiliates from teams all across the country are invited to attend the camp to scout and recruit for their organizations. Spectators are welcome on Saturday.

Logistics of the Move
It took two large U-hauls, a semi, a truck with a gooseneck trailer, and a pickup truck to move the Mavs’ equipment from Shreveport, Louisiana, to Owensboro. The semi flatbed was used to move their court, which has now been installed in their training facility.
