Rudy Gay to hold charity game November 8th at DeSoto Civic Center in Southaven

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Rudy Gay has played in some of the charity

games his fellow NBA players have arranged during the lockout. Now

the Memphis Grizzlies forward has decided to hold his own game.

Gay announced on Twitter that he has organized an exhibition for

Nov. 8.

The game will be played at the DeSoto Civic Center in Southaven,

Miss., just outside of Memphis, and proceeds will benefit Flight 22

Foundation, Gay's nonprofit group raising money for childhood

education in Memphis and his hometown of Baltimore.

Among those committed are Kevin Durant, John Wall, Grizzlies

teammates Zach Randolph and O.J. Mayo. Former NBA player Penny

Hardaway also will play. Gay is expected to announce other players

in the coming days.

Gay was cleared to play recently after hurting his left shoulder

in February.
