"Marty Blake (NBA director of scouting) said he will make sure Rodgers gets a shot in the NBA Developmental League next winter" Flax mailed out three contracts Wednesday to veteran players he hopes will come to camp — 6-8 forward Wayne Houston, 6-0 guard Gary Johnson and 65 guard Jermaine Jackson. Houston and Johnson played for Flax at Brown Mack­ le during the 1995-96 season and have extensive minor league experience. Jackson played for the Detroit Pistons and was in the Philadelphia 76ers preseason camp this season before playing in the Continental Basketball Association. Flax said two other familiar names will participate in the preseason camp — guard Eddie Smith, who played at Cloud County, and swingman Nino Smith, who played for Flax at Brown Mackie. "They are two local guys (both live near Salina) who we think can help us with roster needs," Flax said. Flax said he will bring in "up to 20" players to camp. The list initially may or may not include the six players Flax protected from last year's team — guards Billy Thomas and Martin Lewis, who are playing for the Cincinnati Slam of the International Basketball League; center Reggie Bassette, who is playing in Germany; forward Tony Kitt, who is playing in Belgium; forward Cedric Webber, who played with the Cagerz two years ago and had a brief but successful stint this winter with the Salina Rattlers before leaving to play for New Mexico in the IBL; and guard Gerald Walker. Flax said he talked with all of the protected players, except Walker, and expects them to eventually join the team. Walker faces an uphill battle in what figures to be a crowded and talented backcourt. "We're making flight arrangements and talking with agents and players to make sure we have who want in here," Flax said.
