Former Gonzaga guard Steven Gray has received a training camp invitation from the Wizards, according to multiple reports.Playing in three summer league games for the Wizards, Gray averaged 7.3 points in 17 minutes per game. The 6-foot-5 wingstood out among the non-roster invitees with his heady play and knockdown shooting from inside the 3-point territory. Gray finished 8 of 9 on his 2-point attempts, 2 of 11 from beyond the arc.We talked before summer leagueopened about Gray not fitting your typical jock profile. On the court in Las Vegas, Gray helped key a second quarter surge in an eventual win over the Rockets. Even though his touch from distance was off in Vegas, typically Gray is effective from long range. Duringthe 2010-11 season at Gonzaga, the senior guard made 37 percent of his 3-point attempts and averaged 13.9 points. Last season playing in Latvia, Gray drained 46.5 percent of his 3's.After signing free agent point guard A.J. Price, the Wizards have 13 players on the roster, including five guards, though small forward Trevor Ariza and Cartier Martin can swing down to the backcourt. Even with the addition of first round pick Bradley Beal and Martin's return, the Wizards roster could stand another perimeter shooting option. Free agent Roger Mason remains available and a rumored option. Gray's long oddsof making the final rosterwould rise if the team decided onentering the regular season with the maximum allotted 15 players.
