Two of Team Trae Young’s most outstanding players have the special invitation to attend one of the most elite camps for high school hoopers: Damian Lillard’s Formula Zero Camp.
Kaden Cooper and Ja’Kobe Walter are among just 19 players selected to attend the invite-only event, which runs from August 3rd-7th.
These prospects have been selected to participate in Damien Lillard’s Formula Zero Camp in Portland, Oregon August 3-7th — college prospects also will be in attendance.

What is Formula Zero?
After one day here, this is how I'd define it:
A community (not a camp) of like-minded basketball people using "The Formula," which emphasizes character, work ethic, and accountability to maximize their potential.
Stay tuned. pic.twitter.com/F3LOvg71Sg

Both players are buoyed by an outstanding summer in their final 3SSB Circuit for TTY. Stats recently compiled by Synergy stats showed that Ja’Kobe was one of the most efficient scorers on The Circuit.
