While in Southern California this weekend to lead his club basketball team, Mike Bibby, three years removed from playing in his last NBA game, will lace it up and play in The Basketball Tournament.

This isn’t just a good workout for the Phoenix Shadow Mountain High coach and former University of Arizona point guard.

“It’s serious,” he said. “It’s a million dollars.”

That’s the prize money for the winner of the five-on-five, single-elimination tournament that features former NBA and college players and has expanded into four regions – Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

There is also a TV deal with ESPN for the winner.

Bibby said that former Florida and NBA point guard Jason Williams and former USC and NBA forward Brian Scalabrine are on his team.

“I made 350 jump shots the other day,” said Bibby, who will lead Team Bibby, led by his son Michael, a senior guard, starting Wednesday in the Double Pump Summer Tip-Off in Anaheim.

Bibby’s team plays in the LA Regional, July 10-12, at Cal State Los Angeles.
