Khem Birch doesn't pay much attention to what's said about him, turning pro after his junior season at UNLV. Assistant coach Sam Cassell, who is running the Wizards' summer league team that plays Saturday vs. the San Antonio Spurs, paid the highest compliment to the undrafted free agent. Cassell said if it were up to him, Birch would be part of the Wizards' 15-man roster to begin the regular season. "Oh really? That's cool," Birch said when told of Cassell 's comments. "A lot of people doubted me, thinking I shouldn't have left early. I know I was ready. Even if I don't make the team it shows that I still have a chance to make it in the league." CSNWashington.com
