Former New Jersey Nets and Los Angeles Clippers player Duane Washington has been sentenced to 60 days in jail for hitting a pedestrian and then leaving the scene in western Michigan.
MLive.com (http://bit.ly/183nPu8) reported Monday that an Ottawa County judge also placed the 48-year-old Washington on 18 months' probation and ordered him to perform 100 hours of community service.
Authorities say the ex-NBA player hit 71-year-old Estella Vitins on Sept. 18 as she walked along Interstate 96 in Crockery Township after running out of gas. Vitins survived the accident, though she suffered a broken leg and other injuries.
The judge says he exceeded a pre-sentencing report that recommended a 30-day sentence because Washington didn't have insurance.
Washington is the brother of Clippers player Derek Fisher.

I am so overly excited to be back with the Clippers, it's a great situation
I'm going to do a bit of barber shop talk here ... but I think this situation is one of the rarest you can find for a free agent. If you asked me last week, as a free agent, if I had three NBA wishes, it would be playing for Doc Rivers, playing in...
PLAYA VISTA, Calif. -- No NBA team has been more active this offseason than the Clippers, but coach Doc Rivers said Monday they might not be done making moves.
On the day the team introduced first-round draft pick Reggie Bullock to the media, Rivers indicated there could be a few more additions.
"We're still looking for a couple of other guys," he said, "but...
It was one of the more interesting things about this past season that seemed to get very little attention. With all of the coverage on Dwight Howard and where he might go, it seemed the fact that Clippers point guard Chris Paul was scheduled to be a free agent was flying under the radar.
Was it the way CP3 handled it? I’m not sure. While the Dwightmare 2 dragged out once free agency...
The Los Angeles Clippers have waived DaJuan Summers.
Summers appeared in two games for the Clippers last season, averaging 1.0 points and 1.0 rebounds in 3.5 minutes of action. Summers will play for the Clippers in the upcoming 2013 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
Current L.A. Clippers guard and former North Carolina player Reggie Bullock took to twitter to express how hungry he was waiting at an airport which apparently has no food.
The Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to sign Ryan Hollins on a one-year contract.
Hollins signed with the Clippers last offseason.
Lamar Odom is an unrestricted free agent and would like to return to the Los Angeles Lakers, according to a report. Hollywood Life (yes, I realize how funny that sounds) says Odom will sign with the Lakers if they offer him a contract. “It’s very close if not already in the works that Lamar is [...]
Word going around the internet is that the Lakers have reached out to Lamar Odom. Odom, who played with the Lakers from 2004-’11 before being traded to the Mavericks, would probably welcome a return back to his former team.
Chances are that it won’t cost the Lakers much to sign Odom, but if this is it for the Lakers it’s been a bit of a letdown off-season, after losing free...
The Clippers have added yet another guard to their backcourt rotation.
USA Today is reporting that the Clippers have agreed to a two-year deal with Darren Collison.
He averaged 12 points and 5.1 assists per game with the Dallas Mavericks last season, and will try to find some room in a backcourt that includes Chris Paul, J.J. Redick and Jamaal Crawford.
