Former Georgetown players Jaren Jackson and Sam Jefferson and Washington native David Butler of NCAA champion Nevada-Las Vegas are among 25 players who are expected to attend the Washington Bullets rookie/free agent camp next week at Bowie State.
In addition to the team's two second-round draft picks, Greg Foster of Texas-El Paso and A.J. English of Virginia Union, the Bullets also invited North Carolina's Scott Williams, Villanova's 7-foot-2 center Tom Greis, Missouri's Nathan Buntin, CBA rookie of the year Clifford Lett and former St. John's star Shelton Jones, who played for the Philadelphia 76ers in 1988-89 and in France last year.
The Bullets will open the three-day camp Monday, then join the Milwaukee Bucks, Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers in a rookie tournament in Auburn Hills, Mich., July 19-22.
Jackson is a 6-4 guard who played 28 games and averaged 2.4 points for the New Jersey Nets last season. Jefferson, a 6-9 forward who attended Flint Hill Prep in Oakton, averaged 3.5 points and 3.4 rebounds for the Hoyas last year.
Lett averaged 21.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.9 assists and shot 59.2 percent for the Pensacola Tornados. He was named to the CBA's all-rookie and all-defensive teams.
Greis (13.4 points, 5.4 rebounds), 6-10 Williams (14.9, 7.5), 6-10 Butler (15.8, 7.4) and 6-8 Buntin (14.8, 9.5) were not selected in last month's NBA draft.
