Jeff Lemans McInnis (born October 22, 1974) is an American retired professional basketball player. He played in the National Basketball Association (NBA), in Greece (1996-97)[1] and in the Continental Basketball Association (CBA)[2] (1998-99).


After his junior year playing for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, McInnis was chosen by the Denver Nuggets in the second round of the 1996 NBA Draft.

All together, during his NBA career, McInnis would play for the Nuggets, the New Jersey Nets, the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Portland Trail Blazers, the Los Angeles Clippers, and the Washington Wizards.

For the 2005-06 season, the New Jersey Nets acquired McInnis, a free agent, mainly to back up star point guard Jason Kidd. McInnis played limited minutes, tore left-knee cartilage on January 15, and missed significant time.[3]

Ahead of his return for the 2006 playoffs, the Nets kept McInnis inactive. The team's attempts to negotiate a contract buyout or a trade before the new season were unsuccessful, leaving McInnis in limbo, on the roster but exiled, early in the 2006-07 season.

On January 3, 2007, the Charlotte Bobcats received McInnis from the Nets in trade for Bernard Robinson and cash considerations. McInnis, who would play 38 games for Charlotte, averaging 4.3 points and 3.3 assists per game,[4] was waived by the Bobcats on February 29, 2008.[5]
