Perkins hopes to return to NBA after season off

From ESPN - July 16, 2017

Veteran center Kendrick Perkins told the Boston Globe that he is not giving up on his NBA career after sitting out last season.

Perkins told the newspaper during a visit last week to the Las Vegas Summer League that he has been working to get into shape and hopes to garner an invite to an NBA team's training camp.

"I have been keeping my weight down, making sure I am getting all the cardio I need, staying in great shape," he told the newspaper. "I am just going to do what I can. I feel good. I have been on top of my basketball work and I am just waiting for my opportunity, [if it] happens. I have just changed my diet, working on my quickness, and just trying to get better. It's 30 teams out there and I am just looking for one opportunity. It will come. I am just trying to leave it in God's hands."
