Looking Forward While Giving Back

Nets' international scouting director Rob Meurs is in one of basketball's most remote outposts this weekend, helping run a basketball camp in northern Nigeria. Meurs has been helping out former Magic center Olumide Oyedeji this summer as the Nigerian hoopster draws kids between 7 and 19 to camps throughout west Africa. Meurs, once assistant coach of Mali's national team, has long specialized in tracking African players...and this trip can't hurt the Nets' prospects of finding a diamond in the rough.
