Come meet former Jazzman Thurl Bailey in Price on July 27 as he conducts a free basketball clinic for local children in conjunction with the Junior Jazz program.
Bailey played for the Jazz for nine seasons and currently works as a member of the Jazz broadcast team. Bailey played college basketball at North Carolina State and was a member of the 1983 NCAA Championship team coached by Jim Valvano.
The Jazz selected Bailey with the seventh overall pick in the 1983 NBA Draft and he went on to average 14 points and 5.5 rebounds per game during his career in Utah. In addition to his broadcast duties with the Jazz, Bailey is also a public speaker, singer and songwriter and is involved in many other community programs.
The event will take place at 1:30 p.m. on July 27 at Helper Middle School. The free clinic is open to all local children and members of the community are welcome to attend to meet Bailey and get autographs.
