HoopsHype Jodie Meeks rumors
Williams takes online classes during the season and has spent the past several offseasons working toward his degree. Meeks is majoring in Marketing at the University of Kentucky, and has just 12 hours remaining until he can graduate. "I've taken classes the past few summers," Meeks said. "I just want to finish up. Even without the lockout, I still would have been taking classes. When I was making my decision to leave school after my junior year, I had a talk with my parents and they told me that they wanted me to go back and finish. They had a lot of influence, but I wanted to do it as well. I'm so close, I figured why not? I've been in all of this hard work over three years, I might as well finish up." In May, Meeks enrolled in an 'Economy and Statistics' class. Unlike Williams, he had to attend class on campus because Kentucky doesn't offer online courses for upper-division business requirements.

Philadelphia 76ers player Jodie Meeks, a former Kentucky guard, has returned to the university to finish his degree after his second season in the NBA. The marketing major told WKYT-TV that both his parents have degrees in business, so he wanted to get his degree since he was so close to finishing. He's taking just one class right now, but he said going back to school has been an adjustment. Delaware County Daily Times
The Sixers will exercise their $884,000 team option on starting guard Jodie Meeks, according to Thorn. Meeks provided a much-needed perimeter threat. His 138 made 3 -pointers was the most by a Sixer since Kyle Korver hit 184 in 2005-06. phillyburbs.com
