Venson Hamilton (50th pick, 1999)

- Hamilton's career is pretty much over due to injuries. After many strong years in Spain's ACB, Hamilton began to break down in the 2007-08 season whilst a member of Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid, and could muster only 4 games of ACB play. His 2008-09 season was almost as bad, playing only 9 games and recording averages of not even 2 points and 2 rebounds. Hamilton further missed the whole 2009-10 season while rehabbing, and although he tried out for Greek club Ikaros back in January, he did not sign a contract. Last month, LEB Gold team Caceras passed on signing Hamilton, claiming his was too expensive, and while Hamilton later caught on with ACB team Gran Canaria, he has currently played all of two minutes with the team, recording a missed layup, an offensive rebound of said missed layup, and an offensive foul. Hamilton has thus gone effectively four years without playing; as an undersized post player, he had never had great odds of playing in the NBA anyway. He certainly hasn't now.

Rockets draft pick Venson Hamilton's five year stint with Real Madrid came to an end this summer with the start of the Ettore Messina era. He barely even played last year, so it wasn't an important loss to the team. Hamilton has not played elsewhere this year and is currently unsigned, although he's reported to be training with Rincon Axarquia, a team in Spain's LEB Gold that kind of serve as Unicaja Malaga's reserves.
