MADISONVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Tony Jones and Tobias Harris aren't at Tennessee anymore, but their legacies remain strong in the Knoxville area.

Jones, the new basketball coach at Alcoa High School, and Harris, a first-round pick of the Milwaukee Bucks, are teaming up to teach the game to youngsters at Jones' first-annual basketball camp at Sequoyah High School Thursday through Saturday.

For Harris, it's a constructive way to spend the NBA lockout. The former Tennessee forward is working on his game during the owner-imposed time off. He will also attend UT in the fall.

"I'm going to be busy by coming back here to take classes in the fall, doing basketball camps down here also," Harris said. "I'm just getting a jump start on my degree... and staying busy... working on my game."
