While many NBA players are working out to get ready for the season one Memphis Grizzlie guard is still able to make time to put a few smiles on some faces.

Russ Smith was in town Saturday signing autographs and helping to raise money for the West End School. Earlier this summer Smith hosted a basketball camp at the West End School as well.

Despite having a lot on his plate as his NBA season nears Russ says it is important to stay connected to his fans, especially the young ones, who look up to NBA players
