Default Wang released

Quote:
Clippers Vice President of Basketball Operations Elgin Baylor announced today that the team has signed veteran point guard Doug Overton and released center Wang Zhizhi.

“Doug Overton is a veteran point guard who will not only provide us with backcourt depth but also lend experience to our young roster,” said Baylor. “He is a player who we are very familiar with.”

Overton was a member of the Clippers during the 2001-02 season and averaged 2.2 points in 18 games. He signed two consecutive 10-day contracts with team beginning on March 4, 2002 and was then signed for the remainder of season on March 25, 2002.


Doug Overton suited up for LA for 18 games in 2001-02.

Playing in his 11th NBA season, Overton has career averages of 4.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in 444 career games. Overton was originally drafted by the Detroit Pistons in the second round (40th overall) in the 1991 NBA Draft after a standout college career at LaSalle University. Overton was waived by the Pistons prior to the 1991 season and was signed by Washington where he played the first three seasons of his NBA career. Overton has also played for Denver, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Orlando, Boston and Charlotte during his career.

Overton appeared in six games for the New Jersey Nets this season before being waived on November 13.

Wang Zhizhi appeared in 43 games during parts of two seasons with the Clippers after signing with the team as a free agent on October 18, 2002. Wang averaged 4.3 points per game. He appeared in just two games this season and scored two points in each contest.
Is he allowed back in China?

I think we should pick him up. Just in case someone goes down or foul trouble occurs

Career Counseling - Mr. Wang, basketball may not exactly be your calling. I know of a nice little place down the corner with an opening. I think I can get you in.

He made the incorrect choice by turning his back on the Chinese government. He'll probably be picked up in some European league. He looks like a player to me. His work ethic must be bad or something we fans can't see. He produces everytime he's on the court.

Just thought of something else. Can the Rockets pick him up? He'll probably want to go there to be his buddy.
