J.R. Giddens may have been a Celtic temporarily, but his college carpetbagging has continued at the professional level.
Taken 30th in the 2008 first round, Giddens played at Kansas and later New Mexico due to off-court issues. It seemed like an ideal fit for the troubled player, with 2003 McDonald's All-American Game teammates Kendrick Perkins and Leon Powe already on the roster.
Unfortunately for Giddens, he was nothing more than the celebratory candle on the 2008 Celtics championship cake.
Appearing in just 53 games over one-and-a-half seasons for Boston, Giddens was traded to the New York Knicks to finish out his rookie contract.
Since leaving the league after the 2009-10 season, Giddens has traveled from Poland to Greece to Italy, playing most recently in 2013 with Basket Brescia Leonessa in the Italian Legadue.
