Orlando, FL- Rashard Lewis is heading back to Orlando, FL, but not to reunite with the Magic. Lewis is in town to coach his team RL-9 Clutch in the AAU 11th Grade Boys Basketball DI National Championship and Super Showcase. Lewis is not alone in coaching; he joins a slew of NBA elite that are all in town to coach their teams in the AAU Boys Basketball National Championships or Super Showcase games.
Rashard Lewis is no stranger to the AAU. The NBA All- Star played on the AAU circuit before making it big in the NBA.
