- Tariq Abdul-Wahad

Abdul-Wahad was covered last month in the 1993 Draft Round-up. I shall reproduce it here.

Tariq played in only 67 games this entire decade. He played 29 games in 2000-01, 24 games in 2001-02 and 14 games in 2002-03. His last NBA game was April 14th 2003, and he never played outside of the NBA. He had a tryout with Climamio Bologna in the 2006 preseason, but he did not make the team, and that was it.
