A lot of former Zags are invading town for Hoopfest weekend and Nigel Williams-Goss is making an impact before the festivities.

The 2017 WCC player of the year has given back to the community ever since that magical Final Four run two years ago and he continued his efforts in downtown Spokane, Friday afternoon.

Williams-Goss took to Center Court to help middle school hoopers with ball-handling skills and shooting. He did this for two different sessions lasting roughly an hour each.

As for Nigel's career, he's coming off a great season in Serbia where he'll look to make moves up the European ranks.

The Utah Jazz still retain his NBA rights, but it does not seem like Williams-Goss will make moves back to the United States for this upcoming season.

Williams-Goss is returning to Spokane for the first time since his professional basketball debut and he's happy to be back in the Lilac City helping out.

"I think it's great anytime I can connect with the kids in the area and give back a little bit," Williams-Goss said. "I'm blessed to be in the position that I am that kids even want to spend an hour with me, but I love it. I love giving back and I love teaching. Obviously, everybody knows how much I love the city here and the relationship and bond I've built with the fans in this area. It's just a great feeling and I'm looking forward to the weekend."

Williams-Goss will return to Spokane for his 2nd annual basketball camp later in August. That will be at the Hub Sports Center in Liberty Lake from August 8-10.
