Deron Williams courtside help underway; Nets to run fitness camp in Red Hook

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

The Nets don't play again until Friday night, so in the interim, they're out in the Brooklyn community.

When Deron Williams dished his 379th assist of the year versus the Spurs on February 10, it sparked the first dedication of funds to refurbish borough basketball courts as part of the ‘Brooklyn’s Got Wings’ project, the Nets announced Wednesday.

Albert J. Parham Playground, located less than a mile from Barclays Center and adjacent to the Clinton Hill Elementary School, is the home of the first court selected for renovation. The basketball courts at Parham playground were installed in 1996 and have not been renovated since.

Every assist Williams dishes out over the next two seasons will trigger a $150 contribution for the refurbishment of eight public basketball courts at four parks in the area. All the courts are located within a two to three mile radius of Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets.

Meanwhile, Brook Lopez, Andray Blatche, Mirza Teletovic, Tyshawn Taylor and MarShon Brooks will host 75 youngsters in a ‘Fit Camp’ featuring Boot Camp, Step Aerobics, and Capoeira at the Joseph Miccio Community Center, 110 W 9th St. in Red Hook, Brooklyn, Thursday, February 28 from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
