Clippers release Zhizhi to make room

11/22/2003

Los Angeles Clippers: Doug Overton, who played briefly for the Los
Angeles Clippers two years ago, has signed a contract with the
team.

To make room for him, the Clippers released Wang Zhizhi.

Overton played six games for the New Jersey Nets before being
waived Nov. 13. He averaged 2.2 points in 18 games for the Clippers
late in the 2001-2002 season.

In NBA seasons, Overton has career averages of 4.6 points and
2.0 rebounds in 444 games. He has also played for Denver,
Philadelphia, Orlando, Boston and Charlotte.

Wang, a center, appeared in 43 games in parts of two seasons
with the Clippers, averaging 4.3 points. He had four points in two
games this season while playing behind Predrag Drobnjak and rookie
Chris Kaman.

Golden State Warriors: The Warriors waived forward
Dan Langhi before Friday night's game against the Miami Heat.

Langhi signed with the Warriors eight days ago after the NBA
granted the team a hardship exception to add a 13th active roster
player. He did not appear in four games.

In a prior stint with the Warriors, Langhi appeared in four
games and averaged 1.5 points.
