Veteran center Kendrick Perkins is not yet done with his career. He wants an NBA comeback and he is now ready after sitting out last season.
Perkins was seen in the 2015-16 season for the New Orleans Pelicans, averaging 2.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 36 games and the American center is now waiting for a training camp invite.
“The body feels good, man. I’m just sitting here waiting on an opportunity. Hopefully I can get a training camp invite soon. I want to earn my way. I don’t want nobody to give me nothing. So I’ve been working hard, going two or three times a day, working and grinding. I’m just trying to stay with it. It’s 30 teams out there and I’m just looking for one opportunity. It will come. I’m just trying to leave it in God’s hands.” Perkins said
Giving the best free betting tips, the 32-year-old effective veteran center did not played last season after he got interest on the free-agent market but suddenly nothing came to sign him.
As he was away from the professional game, Perkins said that the year helped him to stay fit and stronger.
“I’ve been keeping my weight down, making sure I’m getting all the cardio I need, staying in great shape. I’m just going to do what I can.” The 32-year-old center added
Perkins spent 13 seasons already in the NBA, playing with the Boston Celtics, Oklahoma City Thunder, Cleveland Cavaliers and Pelicans.
He averaged 5.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game in his NBA career.
