- Doron Sheffer

Former Clippers draft pick Doron Sheffer never left Israel during his professional career.

His career finished in 2008 when he retired for the fourth time; Sheffer first retired in 2000 when he was diagnosed with cancer, returned a couple of years later, played three more years, retired in 2005 preseason, returned a couple of months later to play the rest of the 2005-06 season, retired at the end of the season, missed a year, unretired to play the 2007-08 season, then retired for good at the end of it.
