   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The NBA Prospects Of The Unsigned NBA Draft Picks

Steve Logan (30th pick, 2002)

- Logan had a chance to play in the NBA. After being drafted by the Warriors in 2002, he was offered the chance to sign right away, but held out for more money. A bigger contract was never forthcoming, and he ultimately never signed with them. Logan's rights were a throw-in part of the Erick Dampier trade, and he hasn't ever threatened the Mavericks roster.

By this time, he's never going to. If Steve Logan's career isn't over, it's on a hell of a hiatus. Logan has played amazingly little for a man who went professional nine seasons ago; an abortive one season in the NBDL (as was), some time in the volatile ABA, half a season in Turkey, a fortnight in Greece, a fortnight in Portugal, tryouts in Israel and Poland, and a week or two in Venezuela, are about all he has to show for it all. Since the summer of 2006, Logan has almost never played; the tryouts in Israel and Poland comprised his entire 2006-07 season, and he didn't play at all in 2007-08. He signed with Venezuelan team Marinos for the 2008 LPB season, but never played for the team due to injury, and has not played since.

That was two and a half years ago now, and in that time, Steve Logan has made the news only once. In the summer of 2009, Logan was arrested and charged with strong-arm rape and gross sexual imposition; after spending a night in a bar with two women, it was alleged that he took them back to his house, raped one, and fondled the other. Several months later, in March 2010, the case was dismissed due to inconsistent evidence by the alleged victims, including false claims of physical harm. That same day, in a separate case, Logan pleaded guilty to misdemeanour domestic abuse, and fined.

There was talk of a comeback plan, a recommencement of a career that had been effectively ended by these charges and injuries. However, as of the time of writing, this comeback does not appear to have come to fruition.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 39

- Steve Logan

Things are not going so well for Cincinnati graduate Steve Logan. Logan has played only once since November 2006, and that was in Venezuela in summer 2008. He didn't play a regular season game there and left due to injury. Indeed, in that three and a bit years, Logan has only done one thing of note; be arrested for rape. While out of an evening, Logan picked up two women in that way that professional basketball players can, and took them back to his apartment, where he is accused of raping one and indecently fondling the other. Both charges were dismissed and the cases closed back in October, but Logan's basketball career has not restarted.
