Bucks give two more training camp invites, Nuggets add three, and Hicks to join Lakers for camp
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed shooting guard Billy Rush of NAIA Robert Morris and Tory Jackson of Notre Dame for training camp.
The Los Angeles Lakers have invited former NBA Development League big man Russell Hicks to play for them in training camp according to TrueHoop's Henry Abbott.
The Denver Nuggets have invited former NBA Development League players Courtney Sims, Shane Edwards and Gary Forbes to participate in their training camp according to a league source.
Tory Jackson is a interesting name but I don't see none of these players making the opening day roster.
FWIW, Denver needs to keep 13 players, and they only have twelve with guaranteed contracts.
Denver needs to keep 13 players
Why do they need to keep 13?
You keep 13 or more because there's always injuries
hicks is probably in camp to raise his pay for euro teams as well as hoping to get a good recommendation from the lakers for other teams since the lakers roster is set
They need 13 because the collective bargaining agreement set the minimum at 13.
they moved it up from 12?..nice
Gary Forbes is a guy I was pretty surprised went undrafted. I'm not holding my breath, but I'm pulling for him.
