- Marlon Parmer
Since 2005, Marlon Parmer has played in the NBA, the CBA, Saudi Arabia, Poland, the ABA, Qatar, Venezuela, Estonia, Qatar again, the D-League, and Saudi Arabia again. It's been a well travelled few years, and were it not for the American and European stints in there, we'd have to change the name of the Dan Langhi tour. This year he has been in Lebanon, playing for Sagesse, but unfortunately no statistics are available.
Parmer quit New Mexico in January 2002 after an argument with then-head coach, Fran Frascilla. I can see how that could happen. He then transferred to division 2 Kentucky Wesleyan for his senior season, and averaged 20/6/8, but it wasn't enough to get drafted. Parmer was a training camp signing of the Timberwolves in 2005 after averaging 22/9 in China the previous season, showing once again that China can do wonders for a guy's NBA prospects.
