What Happened To Rodney Carney?

I remember when Rodney Carney was at the University of Memphis and thought that he would be a solid NBA player. Not a star, but someone that would be a solid contributor. After his college career, he was a first round draft pick by the Chicago Bulls, had his rights traded to Philadelphia and played there his first two years there.

After 5 seasons and three teams he's been waived by the Golden State Warriors. For all his athletics, he wasn't a consistent producer. The Warriors were counting on Carney to be a scorer off the bench, but it never happened. I hate to be critical, but he wasn't the greatest ballhandler nor did he have the greatest jump shot. You would think he would've developed a mid-range game, but that never materialized. Up next is a trip to the D-League or in some foreign country. I really liked this guy coming out of college, now he's pretty much our of the league. Hopefully he can work on some other parts of his game and work his way back into the NBA.
