Cheyne Gadson is a 30 year old former Oklahoma State combo guard who is a well travelled veteran of Europe, the minor leagues and Latin America, who even played 7 games in England with the Brighton Bears back in 2005. He went to training camp with the Mavericks in 2008, but last year averaged less than 10 points and 4 assists in the D-League. Gadson is athletic and a great ball handler, but also wild and ball dominant, with not much of a jumpshot and no defined position.

- Cheyne Gadson
Gadson is in the D-League, playing for the Dakota Wizards. He is averaging 9.9 points and 3.7 assists per game.
Gadson is also one of the few people covered on this website that used to play in the British Basketball League. (And by "few", I mean very few. It's him, Andy Betts, and that might be about it. Not even Joel Freeland did that.) For the Brighton Bears in late 2005, Gadson averaged 21/5/5 on a team that featured Luol Deng's brother, Ajou. The head coach and owner of that team was Nick Nurse, who now coaches the Iowa Energy. Nurse wanted to move the Bears to the D-League, but the move didn't come off, so he went back to the States without them.
The Brighton Bears then folded and no longer exist.
