Maggette Most Experienced Of NBA Camp Invitees

The dozens of players joining NBA teams this week with hopes of turning training camp invitations into full-time jobs come from a diverse array of sources, as I examined earlier this month. Players from overseas, undrafted guys straight out of college, and D-League veterans all make up sizable contingencies. So, too, do players with NBA experience, many of whom are looking to get back in the league after spending 2012/13 elsewhere. Others have spent their entire careers on NBA rosters and find their continued employment in the Association up in the air this month, like Corey Maggette.

No 2013/14 camp invitee has appeared in more NBA games than Maggette has. He's trying to latch on with the Spurs and add to his total of 827 appearances. He's one of a half dozen hopefuls with more than 500 games played, two of whom — Dahntay Jones and Mike James — are attempting to make the Bulls opening night roster. Conversely, there are seven players with fewer than 10 games of NBA experience, including D.J. Kennedy and Xavier Silas, who've seen just two games of action apiece.

For the purposes of this list, a camp invitee is defined as a player who is believed to be on a non-guaranteed minimum-salary contract that covers only the 2013/14 season. The players appear in descending order of regular season games played.
