Veteran Cheaney will attend Bullets rookie/free agent camp

July 08, 1994|By Jerry Bembry | Jerry Bembry,Sun Staff Writer

Five veterans, including 1993 first-round pick Calbert Cheaney, will be among the 13 players that will participate in the Washington Bullets rookie/free agent camp that begins today at Bowie State University.

The camp, which runs until Tuesday when the Bullets travel to Philadelphia to play the Baker League All-Stars, also will feature appearances by 1994 draft picks Juwan Howard (No. 5 overall) and Jim McIlvaine. Both will join the two-a-day sessions Monday, but how much action the unsigned draftees will see is unclear.

Cheaney's participation will be determined after an evaluation by team doctors tomorrow.

Cheaney has experienced soreness in his right knee and is to be examined between sessions. If fit, Cheaney may participate in the afternoon session.

The other veterans attending camp include 7-foot-7 center Gheorghe Muresan, point guards Doug Overton and Brent Price, and swing man Mitchell Butler.

"We are fortunate to have a solid group of our young first- and second-year players able to attend this summer's camp," general manager John Nash said. "This should offer them a chance to improve and work with their new coach Jim Lynam for the first time."

Other invitees with NBA experience include forwards Warren Kidd and Bill Edwards and guard Brian Oliver, all with previous experience with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Following next Tuesday's game against the Baker League All-Stars, the Bullets will travel to New York to participate in the Doral Arrowwood Summer League in New York. Games will run from July 14 through July 20, with the 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks, New Jersey Nets, Boston Celtics and New York Knicks all entering teams in the league.
