Basketball Team sport

Basketball is a team sport in which two teams, most commonly of five players each, opposing one another on a rectangular court, compete with the primary objective of shooting a basketball through the defender's hoop while preventing the opposing team from shooting through their own hoop. A field goal is worth two points, unless made from behind the three-point line, when it is worth three. After a foul, timed play stops and the player fouled or designated to shoot a technical foul is given one or more one-point free throws. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins, but if regulation play expires with the score tied, an additional period of play (overtime) is mandated.

Pro career

Despite strong performances in his senior year, Logan slipped to the second round of the 2002 NBA Draft, where he was drafted by the Golden State Warriors with the first pick of the second round (30th overall). As a result of being a second-round selection, the Warriors refused to offer him a guaranteed contract, while Logan and his agent argued that he should have been offered a guaranteed contract since he was in fact the 29th player taken in the draft (the Minnesota Timberwolves had to forfeit their first-round pick). After a bitter contract dispute with the Warriors, Logan did not sign a contract. His draft rights were later traded to the Dallas Mavericks. In 2006, he played in Poland (Znicz Jarosław), and the next year in Israel. As of 2015, Logan remains one of the few first-team All-Americans who has never been on an NBA roster and has yet to appear in an NBA game. [4]
