Stanford Basketball: Where are they now?

A look at the Cardinal playing in the professional ranks

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Minnesota Timberwolves Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Brook Lopez (‘08), NBA

After nine seasons with the Nets and one with the Lakers, Brook Lopez is now the starting center for the Eastern Conference leading Milwaukee Bucks. The former third team All-American has refashioned himself into a three point shooter in recent years, becoming a valuable stretch five. He’s averaging double figures for Milwaukee, as he has in each of his other ten seasons in the league.

Robin Lopez (‘08), NBA

The other half of Stanford’s elite front court duo in 2008, Robin has carved out a nice NBA career for himself. He’s in his third season with the Chicago Bulls after spending seven years with the Suns, Trail Blazers, Hornets, and Knicks. Last season he averaged a career high in points per game, but he’s seen a diminished role this season on the tanking Bulls. Before this year, he’d started each game he appeared in over the past six seasons.

Dwight Powell (‘14), NBA

Powell is in his fifth season in the league, where he has established himself as a valuable bench piece for the Dallas Mavericks. He’s upped his scoring numbers each year, and is scoring with elite efficiency thus far.

Chasson Randle (‘15), NBA

Within the last week, Randle agreed to terms with the Washington Wizards. He has yet to play a game for them, but has been putting up big numbers with their G-League affiliate. He spent last season in Europe after playing 26 career games with the Knicks and Sixers the year prior. Randle is Stanford’s all-time leading scorer, and he’s shown the ability to get quick buckets at each stop to date.

Josh Huestis (‘14), G-League

After three seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Huestis is back in the G-League with the Austin Spurs, San Antonio’s affiliate squad. He’s no stranger to the G-League, as he was drafted in the first round by the Thunder with the understanding he’d spend his entire rookie year there.

Marcus Allen (‘17), G-League

Marcus spent last season in Finland, where for the first time he was the go-to guy on offense. He also developed his outside shot, hitting on roughly 40% of his perimeter attempts. This year he is with the South Bay Lakers, the Los Angeles Lakers’ G-League affiliate.

Anthony Brown (‘15), Serbia

Brown had a cup of coffee in the NBA before spending last season on a two-way deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves. This year he is playing for KK Partizan, a Serbian team that also competes in the Eurocup and Adriatic League. Partizan is among the better European squads, and features a number of other former NCAA players.

Michael Humphrey (‘18), Russia

The recent grad is playing in Russia with Parma Basket Perm. Through four games he’s averaging nearly 20 minutes per game as a key part of their front court rotation. His squad also competes in the FIBA Europe Cup, which will give him the chance to face other talented sides from elsewhere on the continent.

Anthony Goods (‘09), France

Despite never reaching the NBA, Goods has established himself as quality guard in Europe, where he’s played since 2011. He’s seen court time with twelve squads around the continent. Currently he’s suiting up for Nancy Basket in France. Last year he had a career year for another French side, Poitiers, where he averaged 17 points on over 40% from distance.

Josh Owens (‘12), Israel

Owens has cobbled together a nice career abroad, seeing time with seven teams in five countries. This year he’s in the starting lineup for Israeli team Hapoel Jerusalem, who also play in the Basketball Champions League continental competition. He’s on pace for a career high in rebounding.

Rosco Allen (‘16), Japan

After a couple of solid seasons in the Spanish ACB, Rosco Allen inked a contract with the Shimane Susanoo Magic of Japan. The versatile wing is also a key player for the Hungarian National Team in FIBA events, starting the majority of their games and often leading the team in scoring.

Will Paul (‘10), Mexico

Paul transferred out of Stanford after two redshirts and two mediocre seasons, ultimately completing his eligibility at Arkansas Tech. He currently plays for Abejas in the Mexican LNBP.

Josh Childress (‘04), N/A

Though not currently under contract, Childress has not yet called it quits. This past summer he played in the Big3, Ice Cube’s professional 3-on-3 league full of ex-NBA players. Last season he played for the Adelaide 36ers in Australia. He’s been a true journeyman in his long professional career, including stops with four NBA franchises, the G-League, and teams in Japan, Greece, and Sydney.
