Withey put up six points (3-4 FG), three rebounds, one block and one steal across 11 minutes in Monday's 104-78 preseason win over the Clippers.

It's believed that Withey is competing with Henry Sims and Chris Johnson for the final roster spot, but the former Kansas standout probably has the edge at this point. While he hasn't produced any spectacular stat lines over his four appearances, his shot-blocking presence makes him an intriguing defensive weapon off the bench and a decent insurance policy in the event of an injury to Rudy Gobert or Boris Diaw.
