College career

Graham played at Central Florida from 2000 to 2002, and at Oklahoma State from 2003 to 2005. (He did not play during the 2002–2003 season because he was a transfer student.)

After a stellar senior year at Oklahoma State, Graham was drafted by the Toronto Raptors with the 16th overall pick of the 2005 NBA Draft. Graham also earned a degree in aviation management while at Oklahoma State University.

NBA career

Graham was selected with the 16th overall pick by the Toronto Raptors in the 2005 draft. He was chosen with one of the two first round picks acquired from the New Jersey Nets in exchange for Vince Carter during the 2004–05 season. Joey started his rookie season as a Raptors starter, playing as small forward. After five games, he was moved out of the starting lineup and replaced by the 5-year Raptors veteran, Morris Peterson. For his entire rookie season, Graham averaged 6.5 points per game.

On October 29, 2007, the Raptors extended Graham's contract which ran through 2008–09.[2]

During the 2008–09 season, Graham set career-highs in points (7.7) and rebounds (3.7) and tied a career-high in minutes. Graham also set a new career-high for points on February 4 against the Los Angeles Lakers with 24, which he tied 6 days later against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

On September 26, 2009, Joey Graham signed a one-year non-guaranteed contract with the Denver Nuggets.[3]

On July 30, 2010, Graham signed a two-year contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers.[4]

On December 9, 2011, Graham was waived by the Cavaliers, making him a free agent.[5]

On March 19, 2012, Graham was acquired by the Erie BayHawks.[6]

Family

Joey Graham has an identical twin brother, Stephen, who has been his long-time rival and has played for several NBA teams.

Along with his brother, Joey attended Brandon High School, and attended Central Florida for their first two years of college. Later, they transferred to OSU.
