It's been a bit of a rough road for Butler in terms of basketball, and he said he's looking at another 6-8 months of rehab before he is basketball-ready again.
Despite the setback, Butler was in good spirits on Friday, and even offered insights about his goals after his playing career is finished.
"I'll probably go back to school while I have some free time and get my master's," Butler said. "I want to get it in athletic coaching. Coaching is definitely something I want to do, so that will be good."
And with nearly 200 kids under their tutelage over the weekend, Butler, Jones, Bryant, and the rest of the staff are getting a crash-course in coaching and trying to learn on the fly.
"It's a little hectic at first," Jones said of the camp. "You don't know what to expect, it's our first camp. But all the staff is here now and we're at full capacity, so it's going real well.
"Having my brother, Truck, and Da'Sean and all the people that volunteer, I couldn't ask for anything else."
