Kelley, Witherspoon get camp invites

With training camp set to begin next week, the Spurs have added a couple more more warm bodies to the mix: 6-9 rookie forward Wesley Witherspoon and 6-0 veteran guard Tre Kelley.

Not to go all negative, but with the 15-man roster almost set for this season, they both have about as much chance of making the team as I do. That said, they might catch the team’s eye and earn an apprenticeship in Austin. Indeed, that’s where Kelley played in 2010-11, averaging 9.4 points and 3.4 assists in 11 games.

Among other spots, the former South Carolina standout also had a one-week stop with Miami in 2008 and a brief training camp stint with Memphis in 2010.

Witherspoon went undrafted after averaging 7.2 points and 3.7 rebounds last season at Memphis. It was his second straight season of regression after being pegged as a potential first-round pick following a breakout sophomore campaign (12.5 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 43 3-point %).
