Professional career

He was not drafted in the NBA Draft and played in the CBA before a brief stint with the Los Angeles Clippers. Then he played in Poland and Spain before being signed by the Denver Nuggets.

However, he went to play in Israel. In the 2005–06 season, he averaged 22.7 points per game playing with Hapoel Tel Aviv, during that same year Hatten was accused during the end of the season of sexual abuse by a local 19 year old woman [2] alongside Hapoel Jerusalem's Horace Jenkins, Roger Mason Jr. and Mario Austin, the accusation dropped later that year. In the following season he played at Elitzur Ashkelon. He led the Israeli League in scoring per game with 23.23 points and also scored the most points in one game in that season with 49 against Hapoel Jerusalem.


In the 2007–08 season, he arrived in Italy and he played in Scafati Basket. At the beginning of the 2009–10 season, a new contract was inked for U.C.C. Casalpusterlengo, an Italian Legadue team. Then he went to Dexia Mons-Hainaut.

On July 27, 2015, he signed with BG Göttingen. [3] His contract was terminated two weeks later when he failed a physical as a result of a knee injury. [4]

On November 6, 2015, he returned to Mitteldeutscher BC, signing a two-year deal. [5]
