The Clips have added four players to the training camp roster. Normally, these are guys the club just wants to take a look at but have very little chance of making the roster. But now that Jason Williams has retired, there may be room for one of them.
In no particular order, the invitees are Dontell Jefferson (Arkansas), Jelani McCoy (UCLA), David Noel (North Carolina) and Curtis Sumpter (Villanova).
McCoy is the most experienced of the bunch, having spent portions of eight seasons in the NBA since being drafted by Seattle in the second round of the 1998 draft.
He averaged 0.5 points in six games with the Denver Nuggets last season, then appeared in 36 games for the Los Angeles D-Fenders in the NBA Development League, averaging 11.2 points and 7.4 rebounds en route to an NBADL All-Star appearance and a place on the NBADL Third Team.
Over the years, McCoy has played for the Supersonics (1998-2001), Lakers (2001-02), Toronto Raptors (2002-03), Cleveland Cavaliers (2003-04), Atlanta Hawks (2004-05) and several other international clubs.
